APD investigators look over a scene of a homicide on September 6th, 2023.
SE Albuquerque -
On September 6th, 2023, the Albuquerque Police Department officers heard gunshots and received 911 calls about an apparent shooting near the Avenida Cesar Chavez and University Blvd intersections around 8:50PM. When officers arrived they came across a newer model Dodge Ram pickup truck with two gunshot victims.
One of the victims was an 11-year-old boy and the other was a female in her twenties with serious trauma. The boy died on scene and the woman was taken to University of New Mexico Hospital in critical condition.
"These people were very brazen in their actions and what they did," said APD Chief Harold Medina at a press briefing at the scene of the suspect.
Chief Medina said the investigation is in the preliminary stages but several shots were fired at the truck. APD said they will update the public and media on suspect information when they have more information from it's investigation. At the time of publishing this story there was not anyone in custody.
"We do know there is a crowd of people at the game (Isotopes baseball) and we're hoping that others may have seen something that stuck out in their mind," added Chief Medina.
A crowd of 7,100 plus people were watching the Albuquerque Isotopes baseball club at a nearby stadium when the shooting happened. Witnesses told us they heard helicopters flying around the neighborhood.
This is Albuquerque's 107th homicide of 2023. APD urged anyone that has any information regarding this homicide case to call 505-242-COPS.
APD is having a press briefing in the morning on an unrelated issue but told reporters they would have more information on this case.
