ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Officials with the Bernalillo County Sheriff's Office say deputies spotted a stolen vehicle around noon near I-40 and Coors. 


When deputies tried to pull the car over, the driver kept going. After a pursuit through the South Valley, they tried to pull him over a second time, even using spike strips. 

Then the driver tried to run over some deputies who were outside their vehicles.

According to BCSO, that's when one deputy fired at least one shot, which hit the car and forced the driver and passenger to surrender. 

The two men have been taken into custody.

There were no injuries as a result of the shooting. 

This is still an ongoing investigation.
