ALGODONES, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say a suspect who was shot and wounded by a Sandoval County Sheriff’s deputy is a 17-year-old boy.

New Mexico State Police Lt. Emmanuel Gutierrez confirmed Saturday that the teen was armed when confronted by deputies in Algodones, just north of Bernalillo.

Gutierrez says deputies responded Thursday night to a report of shots being fired and initiated a dialogue with the boy.

He says at some point, a deputy fired shots at the suspect.

The 17-year-old remains in critical condition.

No deputies were injured.

Gutierrez says state police are still investigating.
