Espanola, NM - On June 25, 2018 at around 6:00 p.m. a New Mexico State Police officer attempted to stop a vehicle occupied by a male and a female on Riverside Dr. for a traffic violation. The vehicle immediately began to flee from the officer and a pursuit ensued. Moments into the pursuit the male driver began firing gunshots at the State Police officer through the sunroof of the vehicle.

In addition to shooting from the sunroof, the suspect drove into oncoming traffic and then began passing on blind corners and in no passing zones. Concerned for the public's safety, the pursuing officer made the decision to back off from the pursuit.
