Three people were killed and others were injured in two separate incidents overnight Tuesday in Albuquerque.

No arrests have been made in either homicide – a double-fatal crash near the ABQ BioPark and a shooting in Southeast Albuquerque hours earlier.

The violence brings the homicide death toll over the past week to seven.

So far this year, the Albuquerque Police Department has investigated 62 homicides, according to Journal records. By this time in 2021, there had been 60.

APD spokesman Gilbert Gallegos said there was no reported gunfire involved in the fatal crash, but that homicide detectives are investigating “whether the crash was the result of an intentional act.”

Officers responded around 12:30 a.m. to a single-vehicle crash near Central and Tingley. He said police found two people dead and another two with non-life-threatening injuries.

Gallegos said officers responded to a second crash blocks away at Central and Rio Grande, and found an abandoned vehicle at the scene.

“The investigation is ongoing,” he said.

Hours earlier, around 10:45 p.m., APD spokesman Daren DeAguero said officers responded to reports of a man being shot at Central and Pennsylvania NE. He said police found a “lifeless individual” at the scene and a homicide investigation is underway.
