ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Police are investigating a shooting that left three men injured in downtown Albuquerque.

APD said officers responded to a shots fired call at 400 Central Avenue SW around 2 a.m. Sunday morning.

Upon arrival, police found three male individuals with gunshot wounds. Police said all three men were later transported to the hospital and are recovering.

KOB 4 later learned a fight broke out just before the shooting near 4th Street and Central, and police quickly closed off Central.

This is an ongoing investigation, the location and identity of the suspect is unknown.

KOB 4 looked into this dangerous trend of guns downtown, and breaks down the cases we’ve seen just this year.

On March 4, a deadly shooting happened just a couple blocks away near 6th Street and Gold Avenue. This shooting happened in the middle of the day, around 11:30 a.m. Schools in the area sheltered in place until police wrapped up their investigation.

Just the week before, another shooting happened on the same block of Gold– police say one person was taken to the hospital after they were found in the alley with a gun shot wound—he survived.

But that was not the case earlier in February when APD investigated a deadly shooting near First and Central on Feb.19. Police were responding to a call of gun shots in the area and when they arrived on scene the man was dead

By KOB 4’s count, APD has 25 homicide investigations across the metro, and of those 25, four of them have been downtown.
