Silver City police officer shoots, injures man

The New Mexico State Police Investigations Bureau is investigating after a Silver City Police Department officer shot a man last week.

The incident happened Thursday when Silver City police officers attempted to serve an arrest warrant for burglary on 32-year-old Trevor Franco, according to a news release.

“As officers approached Franco, he ran inside his house located at 2602 Yucca Street,” the release says. “Officers obtained a search warrant for the residence. When officers entered the residence Franco was holding a knife to his girlfriend’s neck. During the encounter, an officer with the Silver City Police Department fired his duty firearm at least once striking and injuring Franco.”

Franco was taken to an area hospital before being airlifted to a hospital in El Paso, Texas, the release says.

His current condition is not known; however, the release states that after Franco is released from the hospital, he will be booked on charges of kidnapping, aggravated battery on a household member with a deadly weapon, aggravated battery on a household member by strangulation, assault on a household member with intent to commit a violent felony and resisting, evading or obstructing an officer.

“The New Mexico State Police Investigations Bureau agents are working to independently determine the series of events leading to the shooting, including collecting evidence and conducting interviews,” the release states.
