ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The clean-up process has started in downtown Albuquerque Monday morning following a riot that happened overnight. City crews are cleaning downtown streets after some businesses had their windows smashed. Rioters also tagged multiple buildings following what began as a peaceful protest in honor of Minneapolis man George Floyd who was killed after a police officer knelt on his neck during his arrest.
