Man with gunshot wound dies

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Police on Sunday afternoon thought they were responding to someone who had simply passed out in a driveway but instead found a man with at least one gunshot wound who later died, according to Albuquerque Police Department spokesman Simon Drobik.

The initial 911 call stated that shots were fired, and APD rushed the man found in a driveway in the 800 block of San Pedro SE to the hospital in critical condition, where he died, Drobik said.

Drobik said homicide detectives were investigating, and the man’s identity had not been released Sunday night.

San Pedro was blocked off both south and north of Southern, Drobik said.

Meanwhile, Drobik said no more information was available in a separate incident in which a body was found early Saturday morning in the Northeast Heights, which is being investigated as a suspicious death.
