Police: Los Lunas Man Shot At Officers 70 Times
New Mexico State Police say a Los Lunas man fired more than 70 rounds at officers before he was shot by police.
Chief Pete Kassetas identified the suspect Monday as 41-year-old Daniel Olguin.
New Mexico State Police say they were called to assist Los Lunas police Friday night after receiving reports of an armed man holed up inside a residence stemming from a domestic dispute.
During the five-hour standoff, police say Olguin came out of his home and put down the rifle. But officers say they fired bean bags when he ran back and grabbed his rifle.
Kassetas says Olguin hit a gas meter when he unloaded his weapon.
Officials say Olguin is listed in critical condition.
