boyd shooting

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Memorial services for James Boyd, the homeless camper killed by Albuquerque police last month will be held at Saint Martin Homeless Center Sunday morning.

Lapel cam video shows Boyd getting shot to death by APD in the Albuquerque foothills.

Critics say the video is proof police crossed the line.

That sparked a lot of the outrage against APD not only in the metro but across the country, getting national attention.

The shooting is now the subject of a federal criminal investigation.

City lawmakers specifically asked the DOJ to take a look at the Boyd’s case and the feds mentioned it in their report. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
