The Albuquerque Police Department is investigating a deadly shooting at a West Central convenience store as a “possible justifiable homicide.”
“The preliminary investigation indicates a man defended himself when he shot two other men late Wednesday at the Circle K” in the 9200 block of Central NW, near 98th, APD spokesman Gilbert Gallegos said Thursday afternoon.
One man died at the scene, while the other was taken to a hospital, where he was treated.
Police did not release the names of the two people.
APD’s Homicide Unit was dispatched to take over the shooting investigation around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday.
There they “located two subjects with apparent gunshot wounds,” APD Officer Chase Jewell said late Wednesday.
