Albuquerque police confirm a man shot by officers Tuesday night has been pronounced dead at a local hospital.Police say they're "investigating."
APD Chief Gorden Eden said officers responded to a 911 call that a suspect had pointed a gun at a juvenile at an apartment complex in the 200 block of 60th Street.
According to Eden, officers established a safety perimeter in the area and attempted to communicate with the suspect prior to the shooting. Eden added that "the suspect exited the apartment with a firearm, and fired the firearm," prompting police to fire at the suspect.
But the suspect's sister told KOB she saw the entire incident and said her brother was holding a cellphone, not a gun.
A video uploaded on YouTube early Wednesday claims to show the shooting scene. It appears to show the same apartment and a chaotic scene. In the background, a person who is believed to be the suspect can be seen.
Several people scream and the sound of shots fired can be heard. The person in the video then falls to the ground and people run toward him.
The suspect, identified as Alfred Redwine by his sister, died at the hospital.
