ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A company is under investigation after one of its security guards was fatally shot on patrol at an apartment complex.

KOAT-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2aD2jab) Stephen Wills was not a licensed security guard at the time of his death in mid-July.

The state’s Regulation and Licensing Department opened its investigation Friday into International Strategic Partners.

Company owner William Albrecht said it was a clerical error when the company did not finish Wills’ state application. He said it would not happen again.

Albrecht said Wills received a level of training that did not allow him to carry a gun while on duty.



Police have not arrested a suspect in the shooting.

Albrecht has put up a $5,000 reward in the case.
