Hello Mr. Schwanitz,
On March 13, 2018, we received your request to inspect the following records:
I wish to inspect the following records pertaining to a shooting/"Shots fired" call on 02/18/2018 at approximately 5pm near the intersection of Gibson and Yale in southeast Albuquerque. Albuquerque Police responded to the call.
1. All 911 calls, all radio dispatch calls, all photos
2. all surveillance video, lapel video, dash-cam and witness videos tagged into evidence for this investigation related to searches, and interviews.
These records are exempt from disclosure under the New Mexico Inspection of Public Records Act, NMSA 1978, Section 14-2-1(A)(4) (confidential law enforcement records) and (A)(8) (as otherwise provided by law). We cannot permit inspection because, if made public the requested records could seriously interfere with the effectiveness of a criminal investigation or prosecution. Additionally, if disclosed the records could alert potential defendants to destroy evidence, coordinate stories, or flee the jurisdiction. Further, incomplete investigations contain information that might unfairly cast suspicion on and invade the privacy of innocent people.
These records will no longer be exempt when the investigation is complete. My office will close out your request. Please let me know if you have any questions.
