ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- Police released the identity of the person who was shot and killed outside an apartment near Unser and Ladera.


Noah Tafoya, 17, died and three others were wounded during the incident. 

Police responded to the Rio Volcan Apartments after getting calls about gunfire and a loud party.

Neighbors said they heard multiple gunshots before a man began to call out for help.

“We were kind of concerned but we weren't that concerned because stuff like this happens all the time in this area,” said Alyssa Perea.

People who live in the area said they saw two cars leaving the area around the time shots were fired.

Police were eventually called to the Walmart near Coors and I-40, where they found a gunshot victim.

Eventually, officers learned two more people, who were believed to be involved in the shooting, arrived at Presbyterian Hospital.

Police said the three people in the hospital are in critical condition.
