Albuquerque police shooting leave suspect dead

Albuquerque, NM - Officials have now confirmed Albuquerque police have shot and killed an armed suspect wanted by federal authorities.

The deputy chief confirmed that two officers shot at and killed the suspect Tuesday after he fled from officers at a gas station.

Officials says the 33-year-old had pulled a firearm from his waist and was a threat to the area. The deputy chief says the suspect died at the scene and did not identify the officers in the shooting.

The shooting comes as the city of Albuquerque and the US Justice Department are locked in negotiations over ordered reforms following a harsh report into the police departments excessive use of force.

Albuquerque police have also been under scrutiny for 41 police shootings, including 27 of those being fatal since 2010.
