ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — University of New Mexico officials say a 23-year-old Lobo baseball player was fatally shot outside an Albuquerque club early Saturday.

Athletics Director Eddie Nunez said Jackson Weller’s death was a “senseless tragedy” and called Weller “a very special young man whose absence will be deeply felt.”

Police said no suspects were identified and that the investigation was continuing.

Athletics spokesman Daniel Gallegos said Weller was a right-handed pitcher who transferred from Gateway Community College in Phoenix and was from Keller. He had played baseball at Nolan High School in Fort Worth.

Gallegos said Weller wasn’t currently on the UNM team’s official roster because of injury but was still part of the program and hoped to play again in the fall.

The New Mexico team postponed the remainder of its weekend series against the Air Force Academy.
