ESPAÑOLA – A recent Española police shooting of a teenager armed with a cap gun is prompting more training for officers.

KOAT-TV reported that Española officers and Rio Arriba county officials will undergo new training in crisis intervention.

Officials say around $12,000 will be used for the classes, which begin in July.

Authorities say 16-year-old Victor Villalpando was shot by two Española officers June 8 after he called 911 using a different name. Police say he reported that the suspicious person was armed with a gun and hitting himself.
