Albuquerque Police Department homicide detectives are looking for for a white pick-up truck believed to be involved in the fatal shooting of a bicyclist near Juan Tabo and Central last week.

A flier from Crime Stoppers reports that around 1:30 a.m. on Aug. 21, the white truck was in the area of Buena Ventura Ne between Shirley and Maxine.

“The victim was walking his bicycle when the suspects pulled up next to him and shot him,” the flier states.

An APD spokesman said detectives are still trying to contact the victim’s next of kin.

The pick-up truck is described as a white fill-sized Dodge Dually with fog lights on top of the cab. Witnesses reported it was “very loud.”

APD has released surveillance footage showing the truck as well as a photo of a  2000 Dodge Ram 3500 SLT extended cab 4×4 Dually.
