Statement By Gallup Police On Parade Incident


Response to Ceremonial Night Parade Incident


GALLUP, NM (August 5, 2022) – For Immediate Release -Gallup’s 100th Inter-Tribal Ceremonial Night Parade took place last night. During the parade, Gallup Police Officers were notified that several people were consuming alcohol in a vehicle that was parked along the parade route. Contact was made, the driver put the vehicle in drive and proceeded to strike police officers, pedestrians, vehicles and a business before the vehicle backed into a New Mexico State Police unit and those involved were taken into custody. All injuries were assessed by medical personnel and transported to local hospitals with moderate but no life-threatening injuries.


We are deeply saddened by this incident. We encourage everyone to attend the remaining Gallup Inter-Tribal Ceremonial events. The city is working with multiple agencies to ensure safety is of the highest priority.  We will begin healing together in this celebration of cultural connections. We are Gallup strong.
