NE Albuquerque -

The Albuquerque Police Department's homicide unit has launched an investigation into a shooting incident that occurred in the vicinity of Paisano St. and Zia Rd. N.E., just north of I-40. The incident, which took place around 12:30 p.m., resulted in the death of one individual and left another critically injured.

Upon receiving reports of a shooting, officers from the Foothills Area Command responded to the scene. They discovered two shooting victims, with one individual pronounced deceased at the location. The second victim was immediately transported to a nearby hospital in critical condition.


While on scene, we observed that the area surrounding a Chevy truck was cordoned off and a dead female was located next to the truck. An APD chaplain provided support to individuals that were present on the sidewalk and we saw an investigator starting to collect evidence. The street was strewn with bullet casings.

This fatal shooting marks the 82nd homicide in the Albuquerque metro area for the year 2023.

A video of the scene can be watched here:
