On June 22, 2023, at approximately 7:56PM, Albuquerque Police officers were dispatched to the Southwest Heights Church, located at 9800 Benavides Rd SW, in response to a male, later identified as Alfred Duran, who was reportedly bleeding. We learned from witnesses that Duran came into the church choking on his blood and clinging to life. Witnesses reported that Duran was stabbed to death.
