FBI agent shoots, kills man at ABQ brewery

A homicide investigation is underway after an FBI agent fatally shot a man involved in a domestic dispute at a northeast Albuquerque brewery late Saturday, according to the police.

Albuquerque Police Department spokesman Simon Drobik did not say if the agent was fired upon first or whether other agents were present. No one was in custody or charged with a crime.

Drobik said that around 8 p.m. a woman called police to report she was being stalked, and she soon showed up at Nexus Brewery, off the Interstate 25 frontage road just north of Montgomery.

He said the man followed the woman inside the brewery and pulled out a gun. At least one FBI agent, who was off duty at the time, was inside the brewery and opened fire on the man, who died at the hospital.

“The agent saw that and stopped his actions, basically,” Drobik said. “These guys were off duty so we’re treating it as a homicide investigation.”

He said the brewery was crowded at the time so APD has numerous witnesses to speak with, and the department will work with the FBI during the investigation.

“The federal authorities also should be putting out information here shortly if they are involved in it,” Drobik said.

The frontage road was shut down from Montgomery to the Nexus brewery parking lot as dozens of law enforcement vehicles, both federal and police, surrounded the area. A large crowd could be seen in the brewery parking lot speaking with investigators.
