Albuquerque police are investigating after a maintenance worker was killed Sunday night while doing a random check on vacant apartments in the complex where he lived.

Lt. Ray Del Greco, with the Albuquerque Police Department, said officers were dispatched to a shots fired call at an apartment complex on the 500 block of Madeira SE, near Zuni and San Mateo SE, around 11 p.m. He said when they arrived they found a person dead.

Del Greco said neighbors told officers that the maintenance worker, who also lived on the property, was checking on the property when he was shot. He said no one is in custody and there is no suspect information.

“The maintenance worker is not of the Muslim religion or Middle Eastern descent and there are no indications at this point in time that this matches any of the (modus operandi) of the killing of four other Muslims,” Del Greco said.

The city has been on edge after police revealed last week that they believe the fatal shooting of four Muslim men over the period of nine months, three of which happened over a week and a half, may be connected.
