Tactical Officers were on scene quickly to assess the situation
Around 3:30pm APD officers were involved in a shooting with an armed suspect at the Core Vistas at Seven Bar Ranch Apartments located at 10600 Cibola Loop NW. A neighbor called in to 911 about a male and female involved in a fight inside the apartment complex.
At some point the male left the apartment where the female was and fired a shot at her but apparently missed. The man also allegedly shot at other residents within the complex.
An APD Sergeant trying to locate the male suspect did confront the male and a single shot was fired at the male suspect killing him.
We noticed a few Rio Rancho Police Officers on scene. When we reached out to their PIO they stated "The Rio Rancho PD was not directly involved in the incident, nor the investigation. RRPD officers assisted with traffic control and scene security until enough Albuquerque resources arrived on scene," said Lt. Jacquelynn Reedy of Rio Rancho PD.
This is APD's fifth officer involved shooting that has resulted in death for 2022. A multi agency task force will investigate the shooting and forward their report to the District Attorney for any related charges.
ABQ RAW noticed on the suspects deceased body there was a holster on his torso and he was handcuffed per policy even tho he was clearly deceased. Witnesses said he did fire shots within the apartment complex at residents before Officers had arrived. A firearm was located by police near the suspect.
