UPDATE via the Albuquerque Journal (excerpt):

“The shooting occurred during a fight between a man in a blue shirt and people trying to pull down the statue. The man was pushed onto the street, pulled a can of mace from his pocket and sprayed it. At that point, the man in the blue shirt appeared to have pulled a gun and fired about five shots, wounding one.”
