BCSO looking into suspicious death in South Valley

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Flashing lights, crime scene vans and police tape. 


That's what Clementine Kenton said she woke up to in her South Valley home Sunday, after a large police contingent arrived in response to calls of a shooting. 

"We just heard a bunch of dogs barking, so we didn't know (what) was going on," Kenton. "Nothing like this ever happens around here."

When police arrived to a residence on Potomac Circle, about four miles west of Isleta Resort and Casino, at about 8:00 a.m., they found one person dead. Bernalillo County Sheriff officials say they currently have no suspects, but they're calling the incident suspicious. 

"At this point we're attempting to develop some leads, but as far as something we can follow and make an arrest on, not at this time," said Sergeant John Allen. 

While the victim has yet to be identified by deputies, Kenton says she had seen him around the neighborhood before. 

"It's scary," she said. "I feel sorry for the mom. It's so close to home."
