Police say it happened as LAPD officers were investigating a recent string of burglaries in the Pajarito Cliffs Site county buildings. Around 3:30 a.m. Feb. 17, undercover officers saw a Jeep drive into the parking lot and Antonio Trujillo exit the car, dressed in black and holding bolt cutters.

Officer Jemuel Montoya was dispatched to the scene to engage the suspect and gave commands to Mr. Trujillo to stop. State Police say Trujillo did not comply and ran back to the Jeep and started to leave the scene.

At that time, another officer arrived on scene and parked next to Montoya’s unit. Police say Trujillo drove between the two marked units toward Montoya. That’s when Montoya fired four shots from his AR-15 rifle.

Trujillo continued to flee the scene and led officers on a chase. The pursuit continued until the suspect turned onto a road and crashed. Trujillo fled on foot into a wooded area and was not able to be located by officers on the scene. Police say he was later arrested on an unrelated warrant and the Jeep he was driving during the incident was reported as stolen.

There was no indication of any injuries received from the incident.
