ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A man and woman Albuquerque police say shot at officers during an anti-car theft operation are facing a number of charges.
Albuquerque police said 19-year-old Antonio Delgadillo-Loera and 18-year-old Maria Guadalupe-Cruz were arrested earlier Thursday.
Police say the shots were fired at detectives who were attempting to follow a vehicle that had left the area of the bait vehicle.
Delgadillo-Loera was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, shooting from a motor vehicle, auto burglary, conspiracy, tampering with evidence, and possession of a stolen firearm.
Guadalupe-Cruz is facing charges of auto burglary and conspiracy.
Police say a detective suffered minor injuries after he was struck by bullet fragments in his lower extremity.
It was not known if either of the suspects had attorneys.
