Gilbert Gallegos, an Albuquerque police spokesman, said Tommy McCrae, 66, was fatally struck by a vehicle near Gibson and Palomas SE.
He said police responded around 6 p.m. to the reports of a man being run over in the 5400 block of Gibson SE, east of San Mateo. Gallegos said officers found McCrae fatally injured at the scene.
“Detectives later located evidence that resulted in a delayed homicide call out,” he said. “Homicide Detectives are now investigating the death.”
The department also identified two men recently killed in incidents across Albuquerque.
Gallegos said the deaths of Lawrence Pena, 49, and Issac Torres, 19, are being investigated as homicides. No arrests have been made.
The first incident was Oct. 15 when officers responded around 9 a.m. to an alley near Central and Sycamore SE for reports of a dead man. Police found Pena’s body on the property.
Then, on Friday, police were dispatched around 11:45 p.m. to a shooting at the Albuquerque Rapid Transit stop near Gold and First SW. Officers found Torres fatally shot and he died at the scene.
