ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The killing this spring of a homeless man who police say was shot by two Albuquerque teens “for fun” has spurred Navajo Nation human rights and civil rights advocates to urge more vigilance in reporting attacks that may be perceived as directly targeting Native Americans.

The Navajo Nation Human Rights Council is holding training sessions this week aimed at raising awareness of hate crimes against Native Americans.

It comes two months after police accused two teenagers of bragging to friends about shooting 50-year-old Ronnie Ross, a Navajo.

While the case is not being prosecuted as a hate crime, advocates say it still underscores concerns for homeless Native Americans.

The first session Wednesday at the Albuquerque Indian Center was attended by about 100 people. City officials were encouraging police to attend a session Thursday at City Hall.
