Man Arrested in Shooting of Albuquerque Officer

January 06, 2015  | 

A man suspected of shooting and wounding an Albuquerque police officer during a weekend traffic stop was arrested after a massive manhunt, authorities said Tuesday, reports the Associated Press.

Bernalillo County sheriff's deputies took Christopher Cook, 36, into custody without incident around 4 a.m. Tuesday on suspicion of shooting Officer Lou Golson, Albuquerque police said.

Golson was shot twice, at least once in the torso, as he tried to question Cook early Saturday morning during a stop on suspected drunken driving, police said. It was unclear what provoked the driver to open fire on the officer, who shot back before the suspect fled, authorities said.

Golson is listed in stable condition following surgery, but he will need additional surgeries.
