Police: 2 Sped Off From Albuquerque Fatal Shooting
Albuquerque police are looking for two people who fled in a pickup truck following a fatal shooting.
Police say they're looking for a white, two-door pickup of unknown make in connection with the Friday morning shooting in northeast Albuquerque.
According to police, the pickup has white stickers in the middle and left corner of the back windows.
Police say the victim was shot after an altercation with another man who got into the passenger seat of the truck as it sped off.
Officer Tanner Tixier says it appears the victim and the suspect knew each other and that they exchanged gunfire with handguns.
