New Mexico Deputy Rammed Twice in Patrol Car, Suspect Shot and Killed

August 05, 2014  | 

A Bernalillo County, N.M., sheriff’s deputy, trapped in his car after it was rammed by a man driving a pickup truck, shot and killed the man after he got out of his truck and approached the officer. The shooting occurred just after 6 p.m. Monday.

BCSO spokesman Sgt. Aaron Williamson told the Albuquerque Journal the incident began in the parking lot of a gas station when a man in a red pickup truck tried to force a woman into his vehicle.

The woman ran from the man and got into a silver-colored car with another woman. Witnesses told deputies that the two women drove away from the man, heading north on Coors. The man followed in his pickup and repeatedly rammed the car.

The women then fled from the car and the man in the pickup truck "tried to run them over," he said.

"That’s when the deputy arrived and the suspect rammed the driver’s door of the deputy’s car. After ramming the vehicle a second time, the suspect got out of his pickup truck, at which point the deputy, trapped in the vehicle, fired at least once and hit the suspect," Williamson said.

The deputy was not seriously injured, he said.
