ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Albuquerque police are investigating a shooting at Pat Hurley Park that left one man wounded and as many as five suspects on the run.
The wounded man was driven about a mile by his girlfriend to a shopping center parking lot at Central Avenue NW and Atrisco Road. There the woman called 911 and said her boyfriend had been shot multiple times in his chest and torso.
Field investigators recovered six shell casings at the park, and hospital personnel reported the victim suffered multiple gunshot wounds in the chest and back and that a bullet grazed his hear.
Still, they said, he is expected to survive.
Police reported recovering a blood-covered handgun from the couple's black Escalade.
The victim's name and condition have not been released although police did say an arrest warrant was outstanding for him alleging an unspecified crime.
Witnesses told police three to five men reported to be in their teens to middle 20s were seen running from the upper and lower levels of the park after the shooting. They were wearing sports jerseys, according to police.
