Later today we could learn more about a shooting involving a U.S. Marshal in Albuquerque on Tuesday. The Marshal Service isn’t talking about it, but Bernalillo County Sheriff’s deputies say shots were fired and the man marshals were after was hit. He was rushed to the hospital for his injuries.

An Amber Alert for a 14-year-old Lacey Dewent is still in effect Wednesday morning. Albuquerque police say she could be with Robert Butler in a blue Subaru Cross Trek. Police say they may be heading to Florida.

A huge class action lawsuit against Albuquerque police is in the works. It deals with how officers handle people who are mentally ill. Attorney Joe Kennedy is talking with parents of those who struggle with mental illness and wants more officers to be better trained to arrest the mentally ill.

People will gather in the foothills where officers shot and killed James Boyd last month. Groups plan to meet at the Copper Trailhead at 6:30 p.m.
