8:23 p.m.

For the second time in three days, shots were fired on a busy Albuquerque street late Monday afternoon.

Albuquerque police officers shot a man after he crashed his car and apparently got out and tried to rob one person and carjack another.

The injuries were not life-threatening, Albuquerque Police Chief Allen Banks said.

According to Banks, police received a 911 call about the crash near Jefferson and Central NE.

Witnesses said the man, who was not named, then got out of the car with a handgun and began walking east on Central, where he confronted a woman who was with her child, age 6 or 7, and tried to rob her.

Then, Banks said, the man confronted a man in a car and tried to carjack that vehicle. That’s when a police officer arrived and fired his weapon.

No one else was injured, and it was not known Monday night the number of rounds that were fired.

Central Avenue was closed for at least four hours from Monroe to Washington while the shooting was being investigated.

A crashed silver Honda was visible inside the crime scene tape at Washington and Central.
 


6:55 p.m.

Central Avenue from at least Washington to Monroe is shut down for a crime scene being worked by Albuquerque Police.

APD has not released any details, but Chief Allen Banks and a deputy city attorney are on scene and a briefing for reporters is expected within the hour.

An APD cruiser is parked behind a silver Honda that crashed into a light pole at Central and Washington inside the taped-off area.
