Albuquerque police say one person is in the hospital in critical condition after a shooting near Central and Coors early Sunday morning.

Albuquerque Police Department spokesman Chase Jewell said in a news release that officers were dispatched to a shooting that took place in the 6100 block of Central SW around 2 a.m. Sunday.

There they found an individual who sustained life-threatening injuries. The individual was transported to a local hospital, the release said.

Detectives with the APD Violent Crimes unit are investigating.

Later Sunday, the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s office reported that a man was found shot to death in a field on the west end of Gun Club SW earlier in the morning.

At about 7:30 a.m., police were called to the unresponsive man, Jayme Fuller, a Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman, said in a news release. Deputies who arrived on scene found the man dead.

The man’s identity won’t be released until his next of kin is notified, she said.
