VIDEO: Albuquerque Officer Critically Wounded in Traffic Stop Shooting, Suspect in Custody

Albuquerque police say an officer who was shot near a Walgreens store in the southeast side of the city Wednesday night is in critical, but stable, condition.

The eight-year veteran of APD underwent two surgeries at UNM Hospital overnight. The department has not released his name to make sure all family members and close friends can be notified first, KOB TV reports.

The officer was shot around 7:45 p.m. at the Walgreens at Central Avenue and Eubank Boulevard. The suspect, identified as 34-year-old Davon Lymon, was captured just after midnight Thursday, according to APD.

During a 1:30 a.m. news conference, Albuquerque Police Chief Gorden Eden said a law enforcement helicopter located Lymon hiding in a yard in the neighborhood north of where the shooting occurred.

Eden said Lymon wouldn't leave the yard, so a K-9 was used to take him into custody.

Once again, even a police publication doesn't list the race of the suspect, we should know how often a minority compared to a non minority shots a cop. Are you afraid that it will show that most cops are shot by minorities? We should always know the Race, they always know the race of the person shot by police?

What color is the shooter. Sounds black. If he is, he needs to be charged with hate crime. Blue lives matter. All lives matter. Black lives matter movement is bull crap. God keep this officer safe and heal him and punish the suspect. I pray the officer gets well. I pray the suspect gets hell.

Why are we allowing these skumbags to keep killing these fine people. This should be a hate crime. Will black lives make this pos a hero. Blue lives matter more than ever. God bless the officers family. They will mourn rest of their lives. The skumbag will get three meals a day and he gets to breath. What a waste of good air. Please give him the death penalty with only one appeal, then light him up.

Once the picture is not shown by the media, that tells the suspect is none black. If its a black suspect we will know by now, however what ever the race is, I believed he deserve capital punishment period>
