Albuquerque police say a 19-year-old was shot to death when gunfire broke out in a West Side neighborhood early Thursday.
Gilbert Gallegos, an Albuquerque Police Department spokesman, said 19-year-old Jacob Campos was pronounced dead at the scene and two others “suffered other injuries” and have since been released from the hospital. He said one person was detained for questioning.
Officers were dispatched to the area of Port and Bluewater NW, near Unser, after midnight when someone reported that people were fighting and shots had been fired.
“Upon arrival, officers located multiple individuals with gunshot wounds,” Another APD spokesman, Officer Chase Jewell, said in an email. “These individuals were transported to local hospitals where one succumbed to their injuries.”
Gallegos did not say how the other two people were injured.
