ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO — Three minors and two adults were killed at a home in southwest Albuquerque in a Saturday night shooting involving an assault rifle, the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department said Sunday.

An unidentified teenager has been arrested on suspicion of murder and “child abuse resulting in death,” the Sheriff’s Department said in a statement.

Each victim — a man, a woman, a boy and two girls — had been shot multiple times, authorities said. Their ages were not given.

When deputies arrived at the residence, they discovered “several weapons” inside the home, and “multiple” guns appeared to have been used, including the rifle, the sheriff’s office said.

“There’s no other way to say it, but we have a horrific crime scene we’re working, and it’ll be intensive, and we’ll work hard to do everything that needs to be done,” Sheriff Dan Houston told KRQE-TV.

Sheriff’s Department spokesman Aaron Williamson told the Los Angeles Times on Sunday afternoon that officials were still working to identify the victims and the owner of the guns.

Officials had not yet determined whether the victims were related to each other or to the suspect.

Williamson said police had not had any “recent history” of responding to calls at the home or the surrounding area.

He could not elaborate on why the suspect was charged with “child abuse resulting in death,” saying the district attorney’s office came up with the charges.

    So terrible,…He's probably mentally ill or been desensitized by HOURS of playing Bloody realistic video games .Wonder WHO ( as if alive) they will blame this time the gun ,magazine, bullet or the California super size CLIP.I'm leaning towards the evil (really a semi auto) assault Rifle.

    Mentally disturbed teenager + access to firearms = multiple homicide.

    Having guns in their house didn’t protect this family – it killed them.

    • OoohYeea!!

      Too late he has, the FBI is going after the fans of the Insane Clown Posse (Juggalos) labeling them as a gang.
      Not that it pertains to this case, just FYI.


    Looks like we need to worry about the White Kids instead of Blacks. Black crimes are usually against other criminals….. White Crimes…. Well lets see….. Innocent kids, and their parents… There is something wrong in the suburbs!


        Racist!! They are not colored, nobody took a f*cking coloring crayon to them! They are not AFRICAN American, they are AMERICAN!! They are not negros, negroes(pretty sure you got that spelling out of your a$$), niggas, niggers, nigas(still with me?!), spooks, coons, etc….they prefer the term Black! Why!? Because they are black! Just like I go by white, because I am white, not cracker, not Casper, etc….(still with me Mark, or did I loose you at 'you're a pos racist that doesn't deserve to share the same air as any decent human being'?, yes Mark, that includes Black, Mexican, Asian, Indian, and Middle Eastern ppl too! They are all just as human as the next White person!) btw, mighty big of you to post you ignorance around MLK's b-day….way to stick it to the Black man….you are such a coward, and you and ppl like you really make me sick to my stomach….it's a good thing you hide behind your computer! What little nut sac you have is a lot safer there! Wouldn't want anyone to punch or kick you there now would we!?
