ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Authorities have yet to release the name of a man found dead in an apparent shooting at an Albuquerque motel.

Police were around 5 a.m. Saturday to reports of shots fired at the motel.

They say the victim was taken to a hospital, where he died.

His name hasn’t been released yet.

Officers are working to get surveillance camera footage from the motel and a nearby restaurant.
