APD: 1 dead, 2 injured in SE Albuquerque shooting
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Albuquerque police are investigating the shooting of three people near Central and Wyoming Sunday.
APD has confirmed one person has died. The other two people were taken to the hospital, and are being treated for minor injuries.
The McDonald’s on the corner of Wyoming and Central was partially blocked off, but police also had the area behind the Griff’s blocked off as well. There’s no information yet on who the victims are or what caused the shooting.
KOB 4 talked to one employee on his way home after the shooting. He didn’t want his face to be on camera because he works at one of the businesses right across the street from the deadly shooting.
He says he wasn’t surprised at all to see this happen.
“I look out the front window and I see a few people taking cover under one of the vehicles, and I’m like, ‘Oh great, we got somebody shooting,’” he said.
He had to leave work early Sunday afternoon, after his workplace became part of a crime scene.
“I was at my job, and doing my thing, taking orders, and about in the middle of one of the orders I hear ‘pop, pop, pop, pop, pop,’ and I pause for a few minutes and even more,” he said. “I look out the window and I see a few people gathering around the deceased guy over there attempting CPR, which obviously as we know didn’t work.”
He made it clear this type of violence is frequent here.
“I mean it’s not the first time I’ve seen stuff like this given where I live, but it’s like ‘Oh great.’ So I instinctively kind of take cover behind one of the counters, because I’m not sure which direction they were shooting at, or whatever,” he said.
Police are still investigating. No one has been arrested yet in connection to this shooting.
