Valley ABQ -
An Officer doing patrols at the Ambassador Inn on Candelaria west of I-25 found a security officer dead. A suspect matching the description was seen at the hotel. The suspect car jacked a vehicle and led officers on a chase. Shoots were exchanged with the suspect and officers. The offender was taken into custody. No Officers were injured during the apprehension.
Officers did shoot at the suspect after they were shot at. This is being investigated as a homicide and an officer involved shooting. The offender in custody was not injured by officers return gunfire.
This is the 3rd officer involved shooting in a month for APD and the 35th homicide the Duke City has seen this year.
We will update when more information becomes available.
