ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Bernalillo County’s new headquarters in downtown Albuquerque will be reopened to the public on Wednesday, October 20, more than a week after the complex was targeted by gunshot vandalism. Alvarado Square was closed after gunshots shattered at least 10 windows last week.

The county says construction and clean-up crews have so far removed more than 30 pounds of broken glass. Work is ongoing to repair broken customer service equipment and glass that fell into heating and cooling units. There was an estimated $45,000 worth of damage done to the building.

Police have charged Noah Tapia in connection to the vandalism.
