ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Albuquerque police have identified the man fatally shot in the city’s southeast area, but are still looking for the killer.

KOAT-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1I7VwN5 ) that 43-year-old Marvin Ellis was shot on Palomas Drive near Bell Avenue Sunday afternoon. Neighbors said they heard 12 gunshots.

Police said Monday that they have a motive and are working on leads in the case.

Family members say they believe the victim knew his shooter and considered him a friend. They also say this is the second death they’ve had to deal with this year. Rev. Robert Vaughn says they’re also mourning the death of 17-year-old Jaquise Lewis, who was shot in a skate park in March.

Police say they cannot confirm Lewis and Ellis are related and that Sunday’s shooting is not connected to the skate park incident.
