ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Police in Albuquerque say a restaurant employee was killed after several armed suspects attempted a takeover-style robbery at a Denny's Restaurant.
Police spokeswoman Nadine Hamby says "multiple" armed suspects rushed the packed northwest Albuquerque restaurant at about 9:30 a.m. Saturday.
A female employee of the restaurant was shot and killed.
Two people have been detained, but Hamby says it is unclear yet if they are the suspects in the robbery. A police tactical team has surrounded a home in the northwest part of the city where other potential suspects are believed to have fled.
Hamby says the information is sketchy because detectives have more than 60 witnesses to interview.
