A man wounded in a Saturday afternoon shooting at a Cerrillos Road motel remained in critical condition Sunday, a Santa Fe police spokesman said.

Police have not yet identified the suspect in the attack, but Lt. Sean Strahon said the investigation remains active.

Officers were called Saturday to the motel on Cerrillos Road and Vegas Verdes Drive for a report of gunfire and found the victim, 59, bleeding in the parking lot. 

The suspect initially was described as a man in his late 20s or early 30s who fled in a Buick sedan.

I'm not sure what power the city has to condemn this place as a public hazard but maybe at minimum, the city should rent a room or two and make this an SFPD substation.

This is a place that needs to be shut down for some reason their business practices draw this kind of crime.

From the previous article about this: "The suspect, described as a man in his late 20s or early 30s with a thick build, fled in a silver 2001 Buick four-door sedan bearing New Mexico license plate AKTL45, police said."
