Police-involved shooting Sunday afternoon; suspect hospitalized

7:45 p.m. — At least two police officers shot at a man at Wyoming and Northeastern on Sunday afternoon who was was taken to a hospital in critical condition, according to Albuquerque Police Chief Allen Banks.

Banks said the man had at least 12 felony warrants, but didn’t release his identity or offer any information about the warrants. He did not say how many shots were fired, or where the suspect was hit, and it’s unclear if the suspect was armed.

It was APD’s seventh officer-involved shooting of the year.

The incident began when officers responded to a domestic disturbance on the 1400 block of Virginia NE around 2 p.m. A woman there gave police a description of the man who was later shot.

“She asked for officers to respond, and wanted this subject to go to jail,” Banks said.

Banks said officers found the man at Wyoming and Northeastern when the conflict ensued, and didn’t say if he was on foot or in a car.


Albuquerque Police Department spokesmen confirmed an officer-involved shooting Sunday afternoon following an apparent domestic dispute. APD would not release details about what it called a “confrontation” between the officer and the suspect near the intersection of Northeastern and Wyoming, other than to say the man was the subject of felony warrants and that his condition was critical.

Neither his name nor age were released and the officer was not identified.
