ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Albuquerque Police Department homicide detectives are investigating a shooting that happened Sunday afternoon in the east parking lot of Coronado Mall. APD says an officer was driving near the mall around 2:15 p.m. and heard gunshots in the area. She responded to the scene in the east parking lot of the shopping center off of Menaul near Louisiana.
Police say they found a man with gunshot wounds. Authorities rendered aid and the man was transported to the hospital where he died. “The shooting occurred on Coronado, the parking lot property, but it was more towards Louisiana with a vehicle,” said APD Communications Director Gilbert Gallegos. “There was a vehicle that seems to be involved closer to the steakhouse there.”
Information is limited at this time and it’s unclear what led to the shooting. An investigation is currently underway.
