ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Police investigating a shooting in the area of the Days Inn on Menaul Boulevard near Princeton Avenue Monday morning say they discovered a body, and they are treating the incident as a homicide.


Albuquerque police say officers were responding to a "shots fired" call in the area around 12 a.m. Monday. Officers found a deceased male at the location.  The case is currently being investigated as a homicide by the Violent Crimes Unit. Police say the male victim has not been identified and the circumstances leading up to the shooting are not known.

Police are looking for a late model white Nissan 4-door sedan that was witnessed leaving the scene to determine if it was involved.  No further information about the vehicle was obtained and detectives are looking for any leads.

APD identified the victim in a different shooting on the 200 block of Charleston NE on May 7. Police say the victim in that case is 42-year-old Julio Chavez-Valdez, and his death is also being investigated as a homicide.

Police do not have any suspects in this investigation and have not made any arrests.

Anyone with any information about either case is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 843-STOP.
