ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- Albuquerque Police are looking into why a couple of cars were shot up in a northwest Albuquerque neighborhood.

"I was pretty angry,” said the owner of one of the cars that was shot at least 10 times.

Police reports show two cars were shot up Monday night in the neighborhood behind the Home Depot on Coors and I-40.

"Cars full of bullet holes! And the holes are this big around,” said Nancy Burris who lives down the road. "This was, I think, the worst that we've had."

Police reports also show how APD is still understaffed. One report said officers were not able to stay and further analyze the scene because they were called out to a higher priority call.

“It’s happening in every neighborhood. That's the bad part,” Burris said.

Police reports show the Northwest Impact Unit is now investigating the shooting.

Some neighbors said even if police do catch the people responsible, they’re skeptical that these crimes will be enough to keep the perpetrators off the street.

“It's really sad, it's sad that it's gotten out of hand. But, they put them in jail and they let them out,” Burris said.
