Police search for Paseo shooter


ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE)- Police say they are no closer to finding out why or who shot a woman in the face Friday.

Cops are searching for anything that gets them closer to finding out who shot a woman in the face through her windshield. They say right now, they are not ruling anything out.

It happened Friday afternoon on Paseo del Norte near Unser.

Police said they got a report that something flew through a woman’s windshield and she was bleeding from the face. She was rushed to the hospital where X-rays revealed there was a bullet lodged in her jaw.

Witnesses told police they saw a man on the pedestrian bridge near where the woman was shot. Some witnesses said they heard a gunshot.

Police combed the open space area, but found nothing.

On the bridge, police found one shell chasing, but say they can’t confirm for sure the gunshot came from the the suspect witnesses saw.

It’s why they’re hoping someone saw something and will come forward to provide more clues into the investigation.

“We’re looking for a suspect, obviously. We don’t know who that suspect is so, until we find somebody and we can see if it was random or if it was related, we’re just- everything is open, all possibilities are open and we’re investigating every avenue,” said APD Officer Daren DeAguero.

Calls for service near the time of the shooting don’t indicate there were any other shots fired in the area or similar incidences.

Police said they’re following up on leads but have little to go on.

The case has now been turned over to detectives who will begin their investigation Monday.

No word on the victim’s condition Saturday, but she is expected to recover.
