NMSP: 1 killed, 1 injured in officer-involved shooting

State police say one person is dead and another injured after an officer-involved shooting in Los Lunas on Sunday evening.

According to a New Mexico State Police news release, officers saw a vehicle “driving erratically and at a high rate of speed” through a Los Lunas neighborhood. When police tried to stop the vehicle, it fled, and officers initiated a pursuit.

The vehicle stopped on Entrada Aragon in Los Lunas, police said.

“At some point after the pursuit ended, the officer deployed his department issued taser and fired his department issued firearm towards two male subjects,” the news release states. “Both male subjects were struck by the officer’s gunfire.”

One man died at the scene, the other was taken to the hospital.

The names of the officer involved and the men who were shot have not been released.

State police said they were dispatched to the intersection of Tavalopa Road and Entrada Aragon around 6 p.m. Sunday to help Valencia County Sheriff’s Office deputies secure a scene and locate a woman. As they were looking for the woman, they saw the vehicle driving erratically.
