ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Officers are investigating a shooting that occurred Monday afternoon, Mar. 6, at Cedar Ridge Park near Coors Boulevard between I-40 and Central Avenue. The park is just south of West Mesa High School.

One person, identified as a female West Mesa student, has been shot but her injuries are not life-threatening. A second person, a male eCADEMY student, was injured while fleeing from the gunfire. According to APD, that male was not shot.

This is one of many issues with guns the school has faced in recent months. Staff and students of West Mesa have protested and gone to the school board demanding help. In a letter to parents, West Mesa says “we recognize that incidents like this further traumatize students and staff, particularly after guns were found on our campus in December and January. We encourage members of our school community to take advantage of the counseling resources available to them.”

The Albuquerque Police Department‘s Gun Violence Reduction Unit has taken over the investigation. The names and ages of the people involved have not been released. No other information has been released at this time.
