Police detained the driver of an SUV for questioning hours after the vehicle was allegedly involved in an incident where a police vehicle was rammed and police opened fire Thursday morning in Corrales.

Rio Rancho Police Lt. Jacquelynn Reedy said the officer was injured when his police vehicle was rammed during the confrontation. She said police at one point fired at the SUV before it fled.

Reedy said a tip led police to find the SUV near Central and Old Coors in Albuquerque.

“Rio Rancho officers were able to stop the vehicle and detain one individual for questioning,” she said.

Reedy said that around 8:15 a.m. officers pulled over an SUV that had been reported stolen at a home on Meadowlark Lane in the village of Corrales. She said the driver began ramming the stolen vehicle into a police unit.

“The incident resulted in an officer-involved shooting,” Reedy said. “The suspect(s) then fled east on Meadowlark Lane through the village of Corrales into the city of Albuquerque.”

The police department posted about the incident on Facebook shortly after, along with a photo of the SUV, asking for the public’s help in finding it. In the post, the agency said the rear window “is now broken out.”

The post did not say whether the suspect or suspects had been shot.

“Thank you all for your vigilance and assistance in locating this vehicle,” the department said on Facebook.
