Crime Trends in ABQ

August 20, 2021 The Line discusses the troubling crime trend in the wake of a child-on-child shooting at an Albuquerque middle school and another fatal gun attack at one of the city’s sports bars. The shootings and other crimes have the governor ordering New Mexico State Police officers back to the Duke City to ease the burden on local police agencies. Meanwhile, the police response to a robbery at an Albuquerque coffee shop ended Thursday morning ended with one officer critically injured, three other officers wounded and at least one suspect shot.
