ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The Albuquerque Police Department has released the names of two men killed in separate shootings in the city over the first week of 2020.
Gilbert Gallegos, an APD spokesman, said Vicente Romero, 23, was slain on Jan. 1 outside a northwest Albuquerque townhouse.
Less than a week later, Thomas Gonzales, 34, was killed in a southeast Albuquerque mobile home park.
No arrests have been made in either case.
It was just hours into the new year when officers responded to the first shooting around 2 a.m. in the 3900 block of Ladera NW, near Atrisco. When police arrived, they found several people at the home and an unconscious Romero lying in the driveway. Paramedics couldn’t revive him.
Police say a second man was also injured in the shooting and dropped off at the hospital. That man is expected to survive. His role in the incident is unclear.
