Albuquerque police have launched a homicide investigation after finding a person with gunshot wounds inside a crashed car early Saturday.

Officer Chase Jewell, a spokesman for the Albuquerque Police Department, said the person was found in the area of Dallas and Copper NE.

He said officers were dispatched to numerous ShotSpotter gunshot detection system activations in the area around 4:30 a.m.

When they got there, they found a vehicle that appeared to have crashed and an occupant with apparent gunshot wounds, Jewell said.

“The occupant had already succumbed to their injuries on scene,” he said.

Police didn’t say whether the victim was a man or a woman or provide any other details about the homicide.

This marks the 100th suspected homicide of the year for APD.

This year, there have been 103 suspected homicides in Albuquerque, although three of those are being investigated by New Mexico State Police.
