VIDEO: Albuquerque Officer Shoots, Kills Judge's Daughter During Foot Pursuit

An Albuquerque police officer shot and killed a young woman suspected in an auto theft during a foot chase early Monday, the department’s third officer-involved shooting in five weeks.

The woman, Mary Hawkes, 19, was the daughter of recently retired Valencia County Magistrate Danny Hawkes, the Albuquerque Journal reports.

Albuquerque Police Chief Gorden Eden said the woman pointed a gun at the officer before being shot.

“An officer pursued on foot when the suspect stopped, turned and pointed a handgun at close range,” Eden said at a briefing Monday morning.

A man who was reportedly Mary Hawkes’ fiance was arrested late Monday night after police said he pointed a gun at people near Wyoming and Central, the Albuquerque Journal reports.

Mario Romero, 26, told police that he threatened people and officers with a handgun to try to start a deadly force situation so he would be killed by police, according to a criminal complaint.
