VIDEO: Albuquerque Officer Shot in Face Wednesday at Traffic Stop was Former Officer of the Year

The Albuquerque Police Officers Association has identified the officer who was shot and seriously wounded Wednesday night during a traffic stop.

Officer Daniel Webster was shot several times, including in the face near his chin, while attempting to arrest 34-year-old Davon Lymon, according to information from a federal criminal complaint. 

He has worked for the department for nearly nine years.

Webster was named 2013 APD Officer of the Year. He also served as a paratrooper for 20 years in the U.S. Army before retiring, and has served with APD since July 2006.

He was honored in September 2013 for giving CPR to a baby who was not breathing. His actions saved the baby's life, KOB TV reports.

Webster's wife is a Bernalillo County sheriff's deputy. The couple has children.

Webster remains in critical, but stable, condition at UNM Hospital. He underwent two surgeries overnight and is expected to undergo several more.
