ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Police are trying to sort out a fatal shooting at an Albuquerque motel involving a former CNN anchor and her former CNN reporter husband during an alleged robbery attempt.
Albuquerque police spokesman Tanner Tixier (tih-SHAY) said Thursday the shooting that left one man dead is being investigated as a homicide.
Lynne Russell says her husband, Chuck de Caro, and another man exchanged gunfire after the man entered their room at a Motel 6 on Albuquerque’s western edge and demanded jewelry.
Russell tells The Associated Press her husband was shot three times and is recovering at a hospital. She told CNN on Thursday he was doing better.
Albuquerque police have not release names of those involved, and no arrests have been made.
