ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A man has died after a shooting in a parking lot at the Coronado Center in northeast Albuquerque on Sunday afternoon, according to police.

Gilbert Gallegos, an Albuquerque police spokesman, said the shooting happened in the mall’s east parking near Louisiana Boulevard at about 2:15 p.m.

An officer driving in the area heard shots and drove to the scene, where she found a man with apparent gun shot wounds.

He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead, Gallegos said.

Police asked drivers to avoid the area. They shut down Louisiana south of Menaul after the shooting, and the police’s mobile substation parked at the mall during the investigation.
