We have new details in a triple shooting investigation in Northeast Albuquerque that  include trails of blood and claims of kidnapping.

Police say around 10:30 Tuesday night, they received a call from a home in the 7700 block of McKnight NE.

The caller said a person with a gunshot wound to the arm claimed they'd been kidnapped and mentioned a 4-door gold sedan.

Police followed a trail of blood from that home to a home at the 7700 block of Haines Ave, where they found a dead body in the kitchen with gunshot wounds.

Nearby, they found a person shot in the neck and buttocks with a woman who had not been shot. She claimed there had been an altercation in the area leading to the shootings. Police are not yet releasing names of the two people who survived shootings, but say they were brought to UNM Hospital and are doing okay.

Police have not concretely identified the person that died; the Office of Medical Investigation will do so through fingerprint tests.

As of noon, police have been on scene for more than 13 hours.

They have already processed the scene but are continuing to work it for clues and the area is still blocked off. The mobile crime lab is still on scene as well.

Neighbors claim there was a stabbing at the same home a month ago, and that they've seen "suspicious activity" in the vicinity.
