Police say a deadly explosion behind an Albuquerque strip mall appears to be a suicide.
Officers and firefighters swarmed the shopping mall at the corner of Central and Coors just before noon Monday.
Businesses in the area were evacuated and the area was closed down for hours while police investigated the area.
Detectives now believe the man set off the explosive device behind the group of businesses in an apparent suicide.
Albuquerque police say the investigation is ongoing, but believe the incident is isolated.
