Five people shot in mesa South of Sunport

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — At least five people were injured in a shooting early Friday morning in a rural stretch of land near the Albuquerque Dragway.

Tanner Tixier, an Albuquerque police spokesman, said the shooting occurred sometime before 2:15 at 3513 Los Picaros SE.

“All (of the victims) are expected to survive,” he said.

Tixier initially said officers had discovered four victims “who transported themselves to the hospital.” He later said officers had identified five shooting victims from the scene.

Tixier did not say if police have any suspects.

“The actual scene in the mesa has been processed and cleared,” he said in an email. “Detectives are still working to gather information from victims and witnesses as their investigation is in the beginning stages.”

The area is a popular spot for off-road vehicles and motorbikes.
