ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Police investigating whether the killings of four Muslim men in Albuquerque are connected say Sunday they need help finding a vehicle believed to be connected to the deaths.

Police say the vehicle sought is a dark gray or silver, four-door Volkswagen with dark tinted windows. A Muslim man was killed Friday night in Albuquerque.

Authorities are investigating whether there are connections between that killing and the ambush shooting deaths of three Muslim men over the past nine months in New Mexico’s biggest city.

Authorities say they can’t say yet if the shootings were hate crimes until they have identified a suspect and can determine a motive.
