ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Police investigating what they thought were two deaths in northeast Albuquerque involving a shooting and a pedestrian struck by a vehicle now say the cases are connected and only one person is involved. They now say a man shot around 2 a.m. Sunday actually was the same person believed to have been struck and killed by a vehicle less than a half mile away. They say the victim in the street was found to have a gunshot wound and investigators concluded he was the victim of the shooting at a home. The name and age of the man hasn’t been released yet.
