Albuquerque police: Officer shot near busy intersection; condition, details on suspect unknown

Albuquerque police say an officer has been shot near a busy intersection on the southeastern edge of the city.

Officers had the area, including a fast food restaurant, cordoned off and did not immediately release any details about the shooting, the officer's condition or whether they were searching for a suspect.

Friday's shooting comes almost a week after another officer was shot and wounded after pulling over a convicted felon on suspicion of driving drunk.

The officer injured in that case, Lou Golson, is in stable condition at an Albuquerque hospital and the suspect is being held on attempted murder and other charges.
