ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Police were called out to 10615 Vista Bella Place northwest Sunday morning in reference to a deceased female.
Upon arrival, officers found a female subject with gunshot trauma to her face.
Detectives are currently canvassing the area for witnesses and conducting interviews.
A neighbor who lives in the area said he was surprised this happened.
"In fact I just told my youngest son about this and he says, 'Well, I'm surprised. I thought it was a nice neighborhood'—well it is, yeah," said Fred Gallaher.
By KOB 4's count, this is the Albuquerque's 14th homicide. Last year the city saw its 14th homicide on March 17th.
