Detectives on Saturday released the names of two men killed in various incidents in Albuquerque.

Gilbert Gallegos, an Albuquerque police spokesman, said the deaths of Trevonte Robbins, 19, and Adam Porras, 33, are being investigated as homicides.

There were no arrests in either case.

Officials responded to a shooting at the Las Brisas apartments near Gibson and San Pedro SE at around 5 p.m. Police found Porras shot and later died in a hospital.

Hours earlier, around 2:30 a.m., officers responded to a gunshot detection device near Fourth and Central when Robbins, another man, and a police vehicle were hit by gunfire.

Robbins died on the scene, another man was hospitalized in critical condition, and an officer was slightly injured when a bullet hit his windshield and sprayed glass on him.

“We have a hard time dealing with it,” said Judy Robbins, Robbins’ grandmother, on Tuesday.

She said her granddaughter called “scream and cry” Saturday and said Robbins had been shot.

“I said, ‘is he okay?’ And she said, ‘No Grandma, he died,’ “she said and choked.

Robbins said her grandson – who grew up in Albuquerque – was visiting from Georgia and with friends downtown when he was hit by a stray bullet.

“I said ‘is he okay?’ And she said, ‘No Grandma, he died,’ ”she said, and choked.

“I guess the guy just shot wild,” she said. “This is very dangerous … you can hit someone who isn’t involved in your beef and that’s what happened.”

When asked if Robbins was a spectator, police spokesman Gallegos said: “The detectives have not ruled out any scenario at this point.”

Robbins said her grandson, affectionately known as “Tre Boogie”, is human and the “life of the party”.

“He was a very outgoing, wonderful kid,” she said.

She remembered a time when she and Robbins’ mother watched a basketball game at Wilson Middle School that her grandson was attending. They laughed as the mascot pulled the director into the square and started dancing.

“I thought the mascot guy was wearing the same shoes as Tre,” said Robbins. “And she looked at me and said, ‘That mascot guy kind of moved like Tre.’ ”

“It was Tre, Tre was the mascot,” she said with a chuckle.

Robbins said she will especially miss her grandson, who is checking in.

“I’ll miss that,” she said, adding that she was looking forward to one day seeing him become a father and get married.
