APD Shoots, Kills Teen

An Albuquerque police officer shot and killed a woman on Zuni SE near Wyoming this morning, according to Albuquerque Police Chief Gorden Eden. Eden said an officer was running after an auto theft suspect when the suspect pointed a gun at the officer. “An officer pursued on foot when the suspect stopped, turned and pointed a handgun at close range,” Eden said. Neither the suspect nor the officer has been identified. The officer was placed on standard leave after incident. Alberto Lopez, who was staying at the Nendels Valu Inn, a nearby motel, said he heard about three shots around 5 a.m. and went outside and saw the body lying on the sidewalk.
