ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Albuquerque police say a man was fatally shot on the West Side Friday evening and they are investigating the incident.


It is unclear if any suspects were arrested in the incident which occurred at the Villa Hermosa apartment complex on Americare Court. The victim, who has not been identified, was dead when police arrived. 

However, detectives said that witnesses and residents of the complex told them a man was taking pictures of the dead body before police arrived, and they are actively searching for him. 

Witnesses also told officers a lightly colored Ford Excursion with plates from Chihuahua, Mexico could be seen leaving the area around the time of the shooting. 

"We have some of the best detectives in the state, and they will diligently investigate every avenue right now," APD Spokesperson Daren Deaguero said.
