Albuquerque, New Mexico (KRQE) – Albuquerque Police Station Provides details about Shooting involving police officers that is April 17, 2021APD police chief called about the shooting during a press conference on Friday, June 11th.
On April 17, police were reportedly dispatched to a domestic dispute over the Coyote Canyon Pl. Following a 911 call from Juan Cordoba’s girlfriend, he made a deadly shot at Ventana Ranch in northwestern Albuquerque, ending with an officer with a history of shooting.
Cordoba’s girlfriend told police that he was armed. He had suicidal ideation, had a gun in his hand outside the house, and police tried to talk to him.
Cordoba died on the scene. On the first 911 call, Cordova’s girlfriend told Dispatch that he tried to fire at himself. At a press conference, APD showed a video where he could hear Cordova firing, but it’s not clear where his weapon was pointed. APD says 10 minutes have passed while listening to police officers trying to surrender Cordova.
According to APD, Cordova commented suicidal ideation, “he just kept it in his body bag.” Police officer Bryce Wilsey says he believed that police officers and nearby residents were at risk when he fired the deadly shot. Wilcy has been with APD since 2016, the first time in three years.
“As you know, it’s always a concern for many reasons. Number one: Optics to the general public. Second, executive well-being is always a concern. Someone is involved in this many situations. When … we are worried. What impact does it have on them personally? “Said Chief Harold Medina.
Medina says they are still investigating the shooting, and when they are done, it is handed over to the district attorney’s office to determine if a fee is required. Medina also said Wilsey had sought to leave the patrol and is currently working in a missing person unit.
Officer Wilsey was also accused of tasting the wrong person a few years ago. In 2018, APD was chasing a car thief near Central and Wyoming. A pair of policemen collided with each other and the thief escaped. Wilcy and other police officers asked a couple who lived nearby to tell them where the thief went. Wilcy tasted the man when they said he didn’t know what they were talking about.
They later found a suspicious car thief. The tasting man was not charged with the crime and filed a proceeding against the department. The city settled the proceedings for a private amount.
