Albuquerque Police Department detectives have identified one of the three people who were killed on Saturday in separate incidents.

Gilbert Gallegos, an APD spokesman, said Christopher Hernandez, 29, was dropped off at Presbyterian Kaseman Hospital with a gunshot wound a little before 10 p.m. He died at the hospital.

Gallegos said officers determined that the shooting occurred near Lomas and Tramway NE, and said the case is being investigated as a homicide.

Hernandez’s death was the third homicide investigation opened on Saturday, but Gallegos said the other two victims have not yet been positively identified.

A little before 4 a.m., officers were called to the 7900 block of Bell SE, near Dallas SE, for reports of a shooting. When they arrived, they found a woman dead.

Then – less than 12 hours later – around 1:10 p.m., officers were called to a field south of the Interstate 40 off-ramp at 98th Street.

“An adult male who is believed to be homeless was found deceased in an open field where he had been staying,” Gallegos said. “Detectives determined he suffered significant trauma.”
