Homicide #19; woman shot on west Central

Albuquerque had its 19th homicide of the year early this morning, police said.

The victim was a 40-year-old woman. Here's the news release APD issued on the shooting:

This morning at approximately 2:30AM, officers in our SW Area Command were dispatched to 9201 Central SW in response to a shooting. When officers arrived on scene they discovered a female victim (approx 40 years old) who was suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. The female died from her injuries. A Violent Crimes call out was initiated and our Homicide Unit is leading the investigation.

At this time there is no suspect information. We have not yet been able to identify the victim and as such have not been able to locate or notify next of kin.

Additional information will be released as it becomes available from investigators. I am not available for sound.

Independent Journalism

I've been a reporter, writer and editor for 37 years. I'm dedicated to honest, fair and hard-hitting reporting. I'm not conservative or liberal, but am just a reporter who tries to get to the truth at any given point in time. I don't believe in pulling punches or being a lap dog because that serves no one. A free and aggressive press is essential to human liberty. That's why the Founding Fathers put a free press in the Constitution. So on this site you'll get a variety of news, fearless opinion, analysis, humor, satire and commentary. It's kind of like a free-for-all. My motto is "Without fear and without favor."  But good journalism takes time and money, so I hope you will contribute what you can to these efforts by clicking on the "Donate" button above. I could use your help. Thanks, Dennis Domrzalski.
