After APD detectives arrested Solomon Peña for the recent shootings at local lawmakers’ homes, the City  of Albuquerque released the following statement from Mayor Tim Keller:​​

"Thank you to APD and our partners in law enforcement for working around the clock to investigate these crimes and ultimately arrest a dangerous criminal," said Mayor Tim Keller. "This type of radicalism is a threat to our nation and has made its way to our doorstep right here in Albuquerque, New Mexico, but we will continue will push back against hate. Differences of opinion are fundamental to democracy, but disagreements should never lead to violence."
