DEMING, N.M. (AP) — Authorities say two Deming police officers fatally shot a wanted man after he shot at the officers following a chase and a crash.

The New Mexico State Police said the incident began when 37-year-old Lorenzo Aguilar 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 before crashing his vehicle into a wall.

According to the State Police, Aguilar then ran off and then shot at the two officers who returned fire.
