The man shot by U.S. Marshals in southwest Albuquerque will make his first court appearance on Wednesday afternoon.

Gilbert Serrano was transferred from UNM Hospital to the Metropolitan Detention Center on Tuesday night--the same day U.S. Marshals shot him while attempting to apprehend him on Bridge Boulevard near Five Points Road.

Serrano was wanted on a parole violation from February and new crimes, including aggravated battery and child abuse.

According to the Bernalillo County Sheriff's Department, U.S. Marshals and the state probation department surrounded Serrano's truck around 9:30 a.m. At some point, a marshal fired a shot.

A marshal was also taken to the hospital after the incident, but BCSO officials said the marshal was not shot.
