Shooting outside Albuquerque baseball stadium leaves 11-year-old dead, woman injured

A shooting near a minor league baseball stadium in Albuquerque, New Mexico Wednesday night left an 11-year-old dead and one adult critically injured, police said.

The Albuquerque Police Department said at approximately 8:44 p.m. a suspect fired off multiple rounds on Avenida Cesar Chavez near University Blvd, outside the Rio Grande Credit Union Field at Isotopes Park. 

An 11-year-old boy riding in a truck was shot and killed, and a woman, who was also shot, was hospitalized.

APD Chief Harold Medina told reporters early Thursday morning that the Albuquerque Isotopes – a Minor League Baseball team – were playing at the stadium when the shooting took place and multiple police officers were already at the venue monitoring the game. They responded within minutes of the shooting.

The visiting Reno Aces won Wednesday night’s game 7 to 5.
