State Police: Man killed in shootout with Deming officers

DEMING, N.M. (AP) — Deming police officers fatally shot a man sought on a felony arrest warrant after he shot at the officers following a chase and a crash, the New Mexico State Police said Wednesday.

The incident began when Lorenzo Aguilar, 37, of Deming was approached Tuesday by police who had learned of his location and knew he was sought on a felony arrest warrant, the State Police said.

Aguilar drove off at speeds at over 100 mph (161 kph) before crashing his vehicle into a wall, ran off and then shot at the two officers who then returned fire, the State Police said.
