ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Albuquerque police are investigating a deadly overnight shooting at a West Side party.

Police say officers responded to a ShotSpotter activation at 12:49 a.m. Sunday in the area of 5200 La Bajada Rd.

Detectives have determined there were at least two shooters who fired guns shortly before 1 a.m.

A teenager, later identified as 18-year-old Jada Gonzales, was inside the home and was struck by one round. She later died at the hospital.

“This investigation is very complex due to the number of people who were at the party and several factors that detectives are scrutinizing,” APD Chief Harold Medina said. “But we do know that this shooting stemmed from a house party with alcohol, uninvited and underage guests and the presence of firearms. That is a deadly mix that often leads to tragedy. I am truly saddened by the senseless death of a promising young member of our community with great hopes and aspirations.”

APD is asking for anyone who may have video from this tragic incident to share it with investigators at this evidence submission portal.
