ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Authorities have identified five people, including three teenagers, who were killed in separate shootings on the same night in Albuquerque.

The Albuquerque Police Department on Sunday confirmed 16-year-old Victoria Cereceres, 17-year-old Daniel Alexis Baca, 36-year-old Christine Baca and 77-year-old Manuelita Sotelo were fatally shot at a mobile home park.

It has not been confirmed how the four victims are related.

Meanwhile, officers responded 15 minutes earlier to an apartment complex where 17-year-old Noah Tafoya was found dead and three others wounded.

Both incidents occurred Thursday in different parts of the city. No suspects have been identified in either shooting.

Police say they do not appear related. However, the short time span between them has prompted Mayor Tim Keller to say residents are “fed up with the gun violence.”
