Albuquerque police were investigating four homicides on Sunday, three of which involved victims who were shot.

Three people were fatally shot in separate incidents, and a cause of death has not been determined for the fourth victim. None of the victims have been identified, and as of Sunday evening no arrests had been made.

Just before 1 a.m. Sunday, police say, a man was shot in the parking lot of the Dank Smoke Shop, near San Pedro and Kathryn SE, after an altercation with another man.

“Video revealed the two males exchanged in a short conversation in the parking lot prior to the offender shooting the victim,” APD spokesman Gilbert Gallegos said in an email.

The victim was taken by a relative to a hospital, where he died of his injuries, Gallegos said. A suspect has not been identified.

Around 8:47 a.m., a person walking a dog found a deceased person lying on the ground just south of the Thunderbird Little League baseball fields near Bryn Mawr and Comanche NE. The identity of the victim is unknown, Gallegos said, and police don’t have a suspect.

Around 6 p.m., police responded to a fatal drive-by shooting at Tower Park, near 86th and Tower SW.

And about an hour later, officers responded to a shooting at the Target on Lomas near Eubank. The victim was later declared dead at a hospital.

Gallegos said the two evening shootings do not appear to be related.
