Multiple Officers Involved In Shooting

Multiple Albuquerque Police Department officers fired on a 20-year-old man who they say tried to run over police in a stolen car Thursday night. Police Chief Gorden Eden said he thought a bullet from at least one officer hit the suspect, who was in surgery at the University of New Mexico Hospital late Thursday. An officer who was hit by the stolen car was taken to the hospital and is in stable condition and expected to recover, said APD spokeswoman Celina Espinoza. The suspect was identified late Thursday as Rodrigo Garcia. Police have not determined whether Garcia had a gun, APD spokesman Tanner Tixier said.
