Police investigate after man found dead in NW Albuquerque


The Albuquerque Police Department are investigating how a man ended up in a car at an Albuquerque apartment complex.

Officers responded to reports of shots being fired around 9 a.m. Tuesday at a complex on Los Volcanos near Coors. 

They say they found a man who lived there, dead inside a Jeep.

“From what witnesses are saying there was some type of disturbance prior to this event, and that’s why we’re talking to the witnesses,” said Simon Drobik, an Albuquerque spokesperson. 

APD has not released the man’s name or said how he died.

They also have not identified any possible suspects.
