    Albuquerque Police Chief Harold Medina said that he attended the rally at his hometown Red River when tragedy struck.

    “What a helpless feeling not having a badge, gun, or radio as State Police officers and others enter the restaurant and slowly everything closes down and you don't even know if you can get to your car or if it's in the scene,” he said.

    “Prayers for all the officers out there. This wave of gun violence impacts all of New Mexico large or small.”
