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.
