Albuquerque police: Man shot in home by intruder

February 25, 2013 • State News

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Albuquerque police says a woman reports that her male roommate was shot and killed by an intruder who kicked in the door of their home and started shooting.

Officer Tasia [auth] Martinez says at least two suspects entered the home around 2:30 a.m. Monday, and one of them shot and killed the man who lived in the home.

Multiple shots were fired before the intruders fled. Police say the intruders possibly took a safe or some kind of box that belonged to the victim.

Martinez says a video surveillance system captured still images of the suspects inside the home, and police released one image with the hope that someone would recognize the suspect.

Detectives say they don’t believe the incident was a random act.
