ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The Albuquerque Police Department is investigating a double homicide after several violent days in the city.
Officers were dispatched to 425 Western Skies SE Tuesday morning – an apartment complex near Southern and Juan Tabo. Police said they found two victims dead and one person has been detained.
According to APD, police are not looking for anyone else in connection to this shooting.
To combat and help solve crimes, interim APD Chief Harold Medina said he is hiring two more homicide detectives.
“So we can get a little more success and decrease our solvability rates in homicides and I also asked the acting chief of staff to get the paperwork going so that we could contract two individuals to work as case preparation specialists to support the homicide unit," Medina said.
APD has investigated 58 homicides so far in 2020, four fewer than at the same time in 2019.
