ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Homicide detectives are investigating after a man was found dead late Wednesday night in a gas station parking lot off East Central.

Albuquerque police spokesman Tanner Tixier said officers responded sometime before midnight to the gas station at Central and Western Skies NE after a man was found unconscious in the parking lot. He said the man was pronounced dead at the scene soon after.

Tixier said the death is being investigated as a homicide due to the “evidence on scene” but did not elaborate.

“There is no offender information to release at this time,” he said.
