Albuquerque Police are investigating the city’s 100th murder of the year

ALBUQUERQUE, NM (AP) – Police are investigating the 100th murder to date in Albuquerque this year.

The officials responded to a call at around 4:30 a.m. on Saturday with gunshots. They found a car that looked like it crashed into a person’s yard and the person inside had at least one gunshot wound.

According to the police, the person died on the scene. Further information about the victim is not yet known.

Albuquerque Police Chief Harold Medina said, “Reaching 100 is a grim reminder of the violence that is going on in the city.”

Medina added that Albuquerque “is getting nowhere without community collaboration” and that cultural change is needed to stop the violence.
