Police investigating second homicide of the day in ABQ

Homicide detectives were called to two deaths in less than 12 hours on Saturday in different parts of Albuquerque.

Police spokeswoman Rebecca Atkins said one incident happened in a Four Hills neighborhood and another in Southeast Albuquerque. No arrests have been reported.

Atkins said officers responded around 5:30 p.m. to “an incident” at an apartment complex in the 6000 block of Anderson S.E., near San Pedro and Kathryn.

“When they arrived they located a deceased individual,” she said. “More details will be released as they are available.”

Then, around 7 a.m., police were dispatched to a death outside a home in the 1000 block of Cuatro Cerros Trail SE, just south of Central and Tramway. Atkins said officers found a man dead.

She gave no other details on either incident.

There have been 75 homicides investigated by Albuquerque police so far this year, approaching the record total of 80 tallied in 2019. By this time in 2019, there had been 43.
