Deputies say 28-year-old Adrian Chacon is in stable condition at the hospital and is expected to survive.

Investigators say Chacon was intoxicated while driving a stolen truck Monday morning at CNM's South Valley campus. When deputies arrived, they say he rammed into one of their patrol units before speeding off.

Deputies pursued Chacon to a neighborhood, where he hit another patrol unit before a deputy fired several shots.

"There was no firearms found in the vehicle, but he did have a deadly weapon, being the (Ford) F-150," said BCSO Sgt. John Allen.

The deputy who shot Chacon is Sgt. Christopher Starr, a 16-year BCSO veteran. This was his first deputy-involved shooting, and he is currently on standard administrative leave.

Chacon – who is being charged with aggravated assault on a police officer, along with other charges – will be booked into jail once he is released from the hospital.
