1.NMSP are looking for a car they say was involved in a shooting outside the Governor’s Mansion. Deputies report the incident that happened last Wednesday. A gray four-door Nissan passenger car was seen on surveillance video speeding away from the scene after allegedly shooting at another vehicle. A spokesperson with the governor’s office tells the Albuquerque Journal the governor was not home at the time and the shooting could have been intended vandalism.
2. A busy westside intersection that is prone to speeding drivers and dangerous crashes will soon become a lot safer. Residents near Unser and Sage have been asking the city to do more to slow down drivers. Upcoming changes target 86th Street at the intersection of Sapphire Road. Neighbors say crashes have gone into properties. The city has already added new lights and extended sidewalks but soon, it will add a metal guard rail and narrow the lanes. The project will cost about $106,000 and is expected to be completed by February or March.
3. This morning is starting out very cold again, and temperatures will be similar to yesterday in most spots across the state, however, cooling down east of I-25. Clouds will push west to east across the state during the day, but skies will clear in ABQ during the mid-afternoon. High pressure moves overhead Friday clearing the clouds out, and temperatures will start to warm.
