Gilbert Gallegos, an Albuquerque police spokesman, said the Aug. 16 death of Daniel Gardner, 37, is now being investigated as a homicide.
Gallegos said police responded around 1 p.m. to a parking lot near Central and Pennsylvania NE and found Gardner injured. He said Gardner was taken to a hospital in critical condition and died on Sept. 9 “as a result of his wounds.”
“APD’s Homicide Unit has assumed responsibility for the investigation,” Gallegos said.
Gallegos also identified a victim from a homicide Saturday as Leon Rozzi, 27.
In that incident, police responded sometime before 2:30 p.m. to a shooting at Central and Yucca, near Old Coors, and found Rozzi dead. Police have not given any other details on Rozzi’s death.
