Chris Torres civil trial enters day 3

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Wednesday marks the third day of testimony in the civil trial against APD for the deadly shooting of Christopher Torres.

Tuesday’s testimony included an expert in officer-involved shootings, who says APD’s explanation of events do not add up.

It also included testimony from a psychiatrist who was treating Torres, who claimed Torres was acting normally in the time leading up to his death.

Torres was shot after two APD officers showed up at his house in April of 2011 to serve an arrest warrant for a road rage incident involving Torres.

The officers claimed Torres grabbed one of their guns and that’s when the fatal shot was fired.

Attorneys for the city tried to point out Torres was not behaving as well as his psychiatrist claimed.

This is a non-jury civil trial.

The judge could make a decision by the end of the week. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
