Side Note: APD has allowed ABQRAW staff back into their press conferences and email lists after a lawsuit was filed by us earlier this year. The city agreed to allow us back into all events and send us pertinent information from within the department. This is our first press conference that we have been able to attend in over two years. We as a staff are determined to bring our audience the most accurate truthful information. The information provided by APD can help us determine what happened in real time and we will be able to pass it on to you our audience.
Downtown Albuquerque -
On Thursday morning the Albuquerque Police Department was investigating a deadly officer involved shooting that involved a suspect charging at officers with a knife. Mid-morning APD higher ups held a press conference to discuss data they have analyzed focused on their officer involved shooting incidents over the past five years. The data only covered the years since the Keller administration has been in office.
APD's Deputy Director Zak Cottrell of internal affairs and Chief Harold Medina speak to the media.
