BREAKING: 2 Officers Down In New Mexico

Albuquerque, NM – Two Albuquerque police officers were shot on Thursday morning in the northeast part of the city.

Sources at the scene told KOAT that the officers were responding to a report of a robbery at a business near Juan Tabo Boulevard and Constitution Avenue when they were shot.

Police said both officers were transported to the hospital for treatment.

At least one of the wounded officers was in critical condition, KOAT reported.

Officials have not released any information about the officers’ conditions, nor have they released the identities of the wounded heroes.

An Albuquerque police official told KOAT that one suspect was in custody but that police were still looking for another suspect in the shootings.

Officers were looking for a Hispanic male in his 20s wearing a black hoodie.

Nearby Kennedy Middle School, Jackson Middle School, Chelwood Elementary School, Tomasita Elementary School, McCollum Elementary School, and Manzano High School were told to shelter-in-place while the investigation continued, KRQE reported.

The police department tweeted that they would not be responding to any non-emergency calls for the time being.
