ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - One person is dead, another in the hospital after a shooting at a northeast Albuquerque apartment complex Monday afternoon.
Officials say the shooter is still running loose.
Police were called about 1 o'clock Monday afternoon after reports of screaming and gunshots at one of the units here at the Highland Apartments.
Residents tell KRQE News 13 they heard a lot of activity in the early morning hours, around 1:30 a.m.
Multiple people say they heard what sounded like gunshots or fireworks at that time.
When police showed up Monday afternoon, they found two people had been shot. One of them is dead.
The second person was taken to the hospital, but police have not commented yet on the kind or severity of that person's injuries.
A possible suspect was seen leaving the area in a green Mitsubishi Lancer.
The scene is still very active.
One man says he was outside around 1:30 Monday morning when he saw a man and woman outside arguing.
"She was pacing around a bunch and she was frantic and hysterical and they were talking about cheating and she wanted proof of something but I've also heard that there was drug activity over there," Joshua Murphy said.
It's unclear if the argument the neighbor witnessed Sunday night is at all connected to Monday's shooting.
The people involved in the argument are connected to the apartment that is now a crime scene.
Police are in the early stages of the investigation.
