Albuquerque police: Man fatally wounded in shooting at store, no immediate arrest made


ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico — Albuquerque police say a 22-year-old man is dead following a shooting at a retail store.

Details of the Sunday night shooting remain sketchy.

Police haven't released the victim's identity. Police do say there's been no arrest and that witnesses weren't able to provide any suspect information.

The shooting occurred at a Walmart store at 2550 Coors Northwest around 9 p.m., but it's not clear whether the shooting occurred inside the store or outside in the parking lot.

According to police, initial calls reported a fight in progress at the store and then callers reported that shots had been fired and a man had been shot.

Arriving officers found the fatally wounded man. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.

The store reopened Monday morning after being closed as police investigated.
