Reward offered for suspect who shot at, evaded authorities

Johnny Black, 32 (NMSP)

SANTA FE, N.M. — He has slipped through authorities fingers time and time again.

Now, Santa Fe Crime Stoppers has put a $1,000 bounty on 32-year-old Johnny Black, who has been evading authorities since early June.

Black, of Pojoaque, faces a laundry list of charges that piled up after he shot at authorities twice, during separate pursuits in Española, on June 7 and 25.

Officers caught up with Black in Española on June 30 but he fled from them on foot. New Mexico State Police set up roadblocks with officers and flew in a helicopter, combing the area for Black, but came up empty handed.

Black now has five warrants out for his arrest stemming from the shootings and a residential burglary in Española.

Authorities believe Black is in the Española and Santa Fe areas and should be considered armed and “extremely dangerous.”

If anyone sees Black, police are asking that they do not approach him but call 911 immediately.

Black is described as 5 foot 10 inches, 150 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. He has a “death before dishonor” tattoo across his chest and two lion heads tattooed on the left side of his neck.
