The loosely organized group known as Anonymous released a cryptic video Wednesday strongly denouncing the March 16 police shooting of a homeless man in the Sandia foothills. The group urged the people of Albuquerque to “occupy” Albuquerque Police headquarters on Sunday, the Albuquerque Journal reports.
It also warned of a cyberattack on the department’s websites.
The video calls APD officers “militarized thugs” and warns them of possible retribution for the police shooting of James M. Boyd.
Rob Perry, Albuquerque’s chief administrative officer, said the city takes the threat seriously.
Multiple law enforcement agencies—local and federal—reportedly responded to the incident, and Aurora Police now say five officers were shot and wounded in the incident that left five workers at the business and the gunman dead. The injured officers are reportedly stable.
