New Mexico Police say 1 injured after separate shootings

New Mexico

New Mexico State Police say officers were involved in separate Albuquerque shootings within a one-hour span, and one suspect was injured.

State Police Chief Tim Johnson said an officer fired at a stolen vehicle Thursday night after the driver fled an attempted traffic stop and led police on a pursuit before coming to a stop in southwest Albuquerque.

Johnson said the driver appears to have a gunshot wound to his right shoulder.

No officers were injured in that shooting.

Police had said suspects fled on foot.

Johnson said a suspect was captured and two others were detained.

Johnson also said an officer fired shots in a separate chase in northeast Albuquerque, and authorities are looking for those suspects.

An officer who crashed during the chase has a shoulder injury.
