ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The Albuquerque Police Department says one of its officers has died as a result of what the department calls a “catastrophic medical event.”

The department said the officer was stricken as he and others gathered at a location in northeast Albuquerque for role-playing training on how to interact with people in crisis.

CPR was performed but the officer died at a hospital.

The department said his death was not related to the training.

Mayor Richard Berry said he joins the officer’s family and the community in grieving and that Albuquerque is grateful to the officer and all who serve the city with honor and courage.
