Albuquerque detectives are investigating after a man was shot and critically injured in Northwest Albuquerque Tuesday morning.
Gilbert Gallegos, an Albuquerque Police Department spokesman, said officers were dispatched to a traffic crash near 12th and Montano NW.
“Upon arrival, (Albuquerque Fire Rescue) was already on the scene and located a male subject inside the vehicle with a gunshot wound,” Gallegos wrote in an email. “The male was transported to (the University of New Mexico Hospital) for medical treatment where he is listed in critical condition.”
Detectives with the Gun Violence Reduction Unit are investigating the case and are canvassing the area for witnesses, Gallegos said. Police had shut down Montano in both directions between 4th and Coors while they investigate.
He did not say what they believe led to the incident. A truck with front end damage can be seen crashed against the curb.
