According to the Albuquerque Police Department's graveyard shift PIO Chase Jewell, just after midnight, APD Officers transported a subject to a local hospital after a call for service that occurred in Northeast Albuquerque. The Officers had observed that the subject's behavior was abnormal, which caused the Officers to transport the individual to the hospital.
According to Ofc. Jewell, while the individual was at the hospital receiving treatment from medical staff, the individual succumbed to an unknown medical issue. Because the individual was considered in custody at the time of their death, a Multi-Agency Task Force is now investigating this death.
