Suspect shot and killed by police in downtown Albuquerque
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A person was shot by police in downtown Albuquerque and died in the hospital overnight.
Officers were dispatched to a bank in the area of 5th and Roma where a suspect allegedly threw a rock through a window and threatened people there.
A little later, around 1 a.m. Thursday, a suspect approached a prisoners transport unit in that area where police say he was given a criminal trespassing notice in the past.
The person then began to leave the area and police tried to track him down. That’s when he reportedly pulled out a knife and dove toward officers.
Officers allegedly tried to use a taser on the suspect before one of the officers pulled out a gun. The suspect was shot and later died from his wounds in the hospital.
Police are still investigating what exactly happened. No further details are available at this time.
