Police ID man shot and killed in Northeast ABQ

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Detectives released the name of a man found shot to death inside a vehicle at a Northeast Albuquerque intersection Wednesday morning.

Gilbert Gallegos, a spokesman with the Albuquerque Police Department, said 23-year-old Daniel Guardado was shot in the back of the head. No arrests have been made in connection with his death.

Officers were called around 5:30 a.m. to Carlisle and Menaul NE, where they found Guardado behind the wheel of an SUV. Police say a female passenger was still in the SUV and it appeared the SUV had been in a crash.

Detectives learned a dark-colored sedan fled southbound from the area and have identified two possible persons of interest.
