ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Three people are dead Thursday, Feb. 23, in Albuquerque’s North Valley near 12th and Griegos, according to the Albuquerque Police Department.
According to APD spokesperson Gilbert Gallegos, police received reports around 8 a.m. of an individual lying in the street. Police say an off-duty New Mexico State Parks ranger first found an unresponsive adult male with stab wounds. Rescue personnel later arrived and took the man to a nearby hospital where he later died due to his injuries.
Police set up a perimeter and later found two adults dead in a home near the initial scene. Police say the two individuals appeared to have suffered from gunshot wounds. Police also found another male locked inside a bathroom in the home. At this time it’s unclear if that person has any injuries.
During a news conference, Gallegos said police believe the victims in the house are connected to the individual in the street. He added that officers found a blood trail from the garage of the house leading to the victim in the street.
Police say they found a gun inside the home and don’t believe they are looking for any suspect at this time. Authorities also say they found a young girl – who is now under the care of CYFD – in the home but are trying to find out how she is related to the people involved.
At this time, APD has not released the names, ages, or gender of all the people that died. Police say there is currently no threat to the public. KRQE will provide updates as more information is released.
