Albuquerque, NM— Today Albuquerque police officials released the identities of three of the four victims from separate homicide locations over the weekend in the metro area.
Silver/Stanford St SE:
The deadly weekend began Saturday morning after Albuquerque Fire Rescue personnel found a person dead inside a home as they were extinguishing a fire at a duplex on Silver near Stanford SE. This home is just south of the University of New Mexico campus.
It wasn’t disclosed how that man inside was killed before the fire was started but their injuries necessitated a call to APD's homicide unit to investigate further. The man could not be identified immediately and detectives will have to wait for further examination at the OMI's office.
300 Dorado Place Rd. SE:
APD responded to the area of 300 Dorado where they found a person dead with a gunshot wound near the Manzano Vista Apartments.
Police identified the person killed as 37-year-old Richard Cunningham.
Area of 1st St. and Indian School Road NE:
According to APD, officers responded to a shooting at this location around 5 a.m.
Upon officers arrival, they found a person dead with gunshot wounds. Police identified the man as 42-year-old David Tomas-Herrera.
Alameda/528 and Corrales NW:
Sunday afternoon APD responded to this intersection where they found 43-year-old John Taylor fatally shot just west of the busy intersection near Hooters on the Westside of Albuquerque.
The shooting reportedly happened at or near the intersection but the rider continued a few more feet west of the intersection where he broadsided a vehicle going the opposite direction before collapsing on the roadway. When officers got to the scene the man had already died from at least one gunshot.
