Albuquerque, New Mexico (KRQE) – 2 days in a row Bernarillo County continues to close downtown headquarters The glass in the main lobby of the building broke. The problem occurred around 3 am on Monday after someone said they shot at least eight windows on the 5th to 6th floors of the atrium.

Broken glass is scattered throughout the lobby and continues to fall from above, according to county officials. At a city and county meeting on the homeless on Tuesday morning, Bernarillo County manager Julie Morgas Baka said the situation was still “dangerous.”

“There are shattered glass everywhere,” said Morgas Baca. “It’s really very dangerous because you can hear the glass still shattering and falling all over the atrium.”

Albuquerque police and Bernarillo County Sheriff’s Office are investigating the shooting. Morgas Baca said Tuesday morning that investigators had obtained “camera footage” related to the shooting.

“I’m guessing it came from the Sims (building) parking lot on the top floor,” said Morgas Fool. “I think there were about 20 shots.”

The county says more than 800 employees, who usually work in Alvarado Square, will continue to work remotely. No one was injured by the shooting.
