APD: Child shot at NE Albuquerque home has died

News

Police have confirmed the 8-year-old girl who was shot near Paseo Del Norte and San Pedro over the weekend, has died. 

The Albuquerque Police Department has identified the girl as Diamond Williams. This is one of seven deaths in the past week that APD is investigating as part of a recent spree of gun violence and child abuse across the city. 

“It’s crazy, I don’t understand what’s going on with people and weapons…anyway, all I can say is I hope that little angel gets up to heaven and gets her wings as soon as possible,” a neighbor said.

Police have not said if the shooting involving the little girl was criminal or accidental.
