New video of latest APD shooting released


ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Albuquerque Police released video of the department’s latest deadly shooting on Friday and the moments leading up to it.

It happened nearly a month ago on the same day people protested downtown, calling for an end to police shootings.

The video is from the lapel cams of seven different officers who were on scene when 30-year-old Alfred Redwine was shot and killed.

APD killed Alfred Redwine last month outside an apartment near 60th and Central.

They said he had a gun to his head and that he fired first although they never said where he shot.

Earlier that night, a caller told 911 Redwine threatened two teens with a gun.

Lapel video shows Redwine’s sister, Tammy Redwine, talking with a lieutenant.

“You let me go talk to him and bring him out,” she said.

“No, absolutely not,” the lieutenant responded.

“Why so you can shoot him like you did that homeless man?” she asked.

“No, all we want him to do is come out,” he said.

This was a week after the controversial shooting of homeless camper James Boyd in the Foothills.

The lieutenant said he knows Alfred, that he had dealt with him before.

“We are not here to shoot anybody,” he said.

Later, Alfred came out of the apartment and is seen in cell phone video with his hand up by his head.

“Looks like he’s got a gun to his head,” an officer is heard saying on lapel video.

Officers yelled at Alfred to put a gun down while his family screamed at officers not to shoot.

The lieutenant starts to talk to officers in front of him when one of them fires, shooting and killing Alfred.

None of the angles from lapel video shows whether Redwine shot at officers first, like they say, or even where he may have had a gun pointed when APD shot him.

His sister said Redwine was putting his hands down when police killed him.

The lapel shows Redwine had gunshot wounds to the chest and hip.

Police said one officer shot at Redwine.

Four APD officers were put on standard paid leave after the shooting.
