ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – It’s not a sound anyone wants to wake up to, but neighbors in Northwest Albuquerque said gunfire is becoming more frequent.  And one house seems to be the target.


A home on Supernova Drive is riddled with bullet holes. Not one or two, but nearly a dozen.

Neighbors said they feel like hostages in their own homes. Multiple neighbors, all who wish to remain anonymous for fear of retribution said new people moved into a house on the corner and brought trouble with them.

“There’s been a lot of traffic at that property, a lot of suspicious activity, and now shootings,” an anonymous neighbor said.

Early Monday morning it happened again.

“I just remember hearing bang bang bang and that was it,” he said.

Albuquerque police responded to the call of shots fired around 3:45 Monday morning but said it was quiet when they got there.

Neighbors said there was another shooting Saturday evening.

“People move to this neighborhood because it’s quiet so it sucks for lack of a better word it sucks,” he said. “We just wish it would change.”

The woman who said she lived in the home said she didn’t know what happened or why. Police encourage residents to report any suspicious activity or property damage.
