The Albuquerque Police Department is responding to a shooting at 6th and Lead.
According to a witness, the victim in a rare Mustang GT500 was shot in the head.
We have a reporter en route to the scene and we will update you when we learn more information.
On scene, we observed a silver Mustang and a pile of bloody clothing belonging to a male individual. The scene also seems to be located at the corner of 6th/Lead SW.
APD's civilian PIO Gilbert Gallegos announced their Homicide Unit was taking over the scene as the victim died from their injuries.
A witness emailed us but wished to remain anonymous. They stated that they were driving behind the two vehicles involved in the incident. Apparently a red sedan fired two shots at the silver Mustang as they drove west on Lead SW at around 2nd St. The two vehicles were also followed by a fully marked newer style blue Police SUV. The police vehicle followed the Mustang until the driver died in front of the Alvarado Apartments at 6th and Lead SW.
