ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Shots fired across a downtown Albuquerque street killed one person and wounded another early Saturday and a police officer driving through the area was slightly injured, apparently by glass fragments when a bullet hit his vehicle’s windshield, police said.

No identities or information on a possible motive were released and no immediate arrest was made. The wounded person was in stable condition, police said.

Police appealed to the public for information on the suspect or suspects. They also asked business owners to provide surveillance video of the 2:30 a.m. shooting.

The officer was “in good spirits, but obviously shaken up from the situation,” Police Chief Harold Medina said. “We are very fortunate he was not seriously injured.”

A multi-agency task force will investigate the incident, police spokesman Gilbert Gallegos Jr. said in a statement.
