ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Detectives are investigating after a man was fatally shot Thursday night in a Southeast Albuquerque neighborhood.

Daren DeAguero, an Albuquerque police spokesman, said officers responded around 9:20 p.m. to gunshots in the 1200 block of Ortiz SE, a few blocks north of Gibson and San Mateo.

“Officers arrived and discovered one male subject mortally wounded,” he said. “This has been deemed a homicide callout. Detectives will be enroute to the scene in order to begin the investigation.”

Deaguero did not give the man’s age or any suspect information.
