APD: Man ‘not expected’ to live after SE ABQ shooting

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Homicide detectives are investigating after a shooting in the southeast part of the city left a man clinging to life early Saturday morning, according to the Albuquerque Police Department.

APD spokesman Gilbert Gallegos said the man is “not expected to survive” and police detained those who dropped him off at the hospital. He didn’t identify the man or say if police have any suspects in the shooting.

Gallegos said officers responded to reports of a shooting around 5 a.m. in the 1900 block of Broadway SE, near Gibson. Initial 911 calls “were conflicting” as some reported a crash and others reported a shooting without an exact address.

He said police were then redirected to Presbyterian Hospital when several people tried to drop off a man with multiple gunshot wounds to his head and chest.

Gallegos said the victim was taken to University of New Mexico Hospital but is not expected to make it.

“Detectives have interviewed several people so far in this case,” he said. “This is an ongoing investigation and updates will be made when available.”
