Only 15 percent in Journal poll defend foothills shooting

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – APD Chief Gorden Eden initially called the shooting that’s sparked a lot of public outrage justified, but after the mayor said the chief made a mistake, Eden’s taken back that statement saying a full investigation will be conducted.

On Sunday, the Albuquerque Journal released a flash poll asking voters what they thought about the shooting.

Fifty-three percent say it was not justified, 15 percent believe the shooting was justified and 32 percent had no opinion. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
