    4 Muslim men, Mohammad Ahmadi (62), Muhamma Afzaal Hussain (27), Aftab Hussein (41) & Naeem Hussain (25), murdered in Albuquerque

    https://www.cnn.com/2022/08/08/us/al...day/index.html


    The ambush-style shootings of three Muslim men and the recent killing of a fourth in Albuquerque have alarmed the city?s Muslim community and triggered warnings for mosque-goers as police investigate how the shootings may be linked.

    The killings of Mohammad Ahmadi, 62, Muhammad Afzaal Hussain, 27, Aftab Hussein, 41, and Naeem Hussain, 25, all have one commonality: the victims were all Muslim and of South Asian descent, according to Albuquerque police.

    The three most recent killings happened within the span of two weeks, putting the city on edge as police probed for potential links between the attacks, and put a spotlight on an unsolved homicide from November 2021.

    ?While we are still sifting through all the evidence to look for more connections, it is deeply troubling that these three men were Muslim and of similar descent,? deputy commander of Albuquerque Police Department?s Criminal Investigations Division, Kyle Hartsock, said.

    One of four Muslim men slain in potentially linked Albuquerque killings remembered as 'brilliant public servant'

    The FBI is assisting with the investigation, and an online portal was set up for residents to upload videos and images which might help authorities investigating the killings. The local Crime Stoppers Board has also voted to increase a reward for information leading to an arrest to $20,000.

    Police have not come out with any descriptions of a suspect or suspects in the killings. They have, however, said they are seeking ?a vehicle of interest,? which may be connected to the four killings. The vehicle is a dark silver sedan-style Volkswagen Jetta or Passat with tinted windows.

    Here?s what we know about the killings and the investigation so far:

    The most recent of the killings was reported Friday, when Naeem Hussain was found dead by Albuquerque police officers who responded to reports of a shooting just before midnight in the area of Truman Street and Grand Avenue.

    After the discovery, Albuquerque police said the homicide ?may be connected? to three previous killings of Muslim men from South Asia.

    Those three men ? Muhammad Afzaal Hussain, Aftab Hussein and Mohammad Ahmadi ? were all ?ambushed with no warning, fired on and killed,? Hartsock previously said.

    A fourth Muslim man was killed in Albuquerque after authorities said 3 similar killings may be connected

    Two of them, Muhammad Afzaal Hussain and Aftab Hussein, were both Pakistani men and were killed in Southeast Albuquerque near Central Avenue. Police said they ?determined there is a connection? between those two deaths.

    Muhammad Afzaal Hussain was shot and killed on Aug. 1. He was found on a sidewalk in the area of Cornell Street and Lead Avenue.

    Just days before, on July 26, Aftab Hussein was found with apparent gunshot wounds in the 400 block of Rhode Island. He later died as a result of his injuries, police said.

    As investigators probed the recent killings, they turned their attention to the Nov. 7, 2021, homicide of Mohammad Ahmadi, a Muslim man from Afghanistan who was killed outside a business he ran with his brother on San Mateo Boulevard.
    Who are the victims?

    Naeem Hussain migrated as a refugee from Pakistan in 2016 ? fleeing persecution as a Shia Muslim ? and had just become a US citizen last month, according to his brother-in-law, Ehsan Shahalami.

    He opened his own trucking business this year and was described as being a kind, generous and hardworking person.

    The day he was killed, he had attended a funeral for the two recent victims and expressed fear about the shootings, according to a spokesman with a mosque in Albuquerque.

    Muhammad Afzaal Hussain worked on the planning team for the city of Espa?ola. He had studied law and human resource management at the University of Punjab in Pakistan before receiving both master?s and bachelor degrees in community and regional planning from the University of New Mexico, according to a news release from the mayor.

    ?Muhammad was soft-spoken and kind, and quick to laugh,? Mayor John Ramon Vigil said in a news release last Wednesday. ?He was well-respected and well-liked by his coworkers and members of the community.?

    Few details have been released about the two other victims. Police said Mohammad Ahmadi was a Muslim man from Afghanistan and Aftab Hussein was a Muslim man from Pakistan.

    I'm on my phone, but according to CNN they've detained a suspect:

    I saw that. Great news, as there definitely would have been more senseless murders.

    Suspect arrested in killings of Muslim men in New Mexico, and ‘interpersonal conflict’ may have played role

    A man suspected of killing at least two Muslim men in New Mexico in recent months is believed to have targeted the victims over an “interpersonal conflict,” authorities said Tuesday.

    The suspect, Muhammad Syed, 51, was arrested Monday after a tipster contacted authorities, Albuquerque Police Deputy Commander Kyle Hartsock told reporters.

    Syed is accused of the July 26 and Aug. 1 murders of Aftab Hussein, 41, and Muhammad Afzaal Hussain, 27, Hartsock said.

    He is a suspect in the Aug. 5 killing of Naeem Hussain, 25, and the Nov. 7 slaying of Mohammad Ahmadi, 62, but authorities are still investigating those cases, Hartsock said.

    Hartsock declined to elaborate on a potential motive. In a news release, the department said the victims knew Syed “to some extent, and an interpersonal conflict” may have led to the shootings.

    Bernalillo County District Attorney Ra?l Torrez said murder charges are expected in the case.

    That is just crazy. And I never suspected it would have been another Muslim man; really thought it would be a hate crime.

    Same. I was sure that it was a hate crime. Goes to show that you can't make assumptions.
