AZTEC, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say a Bloomfield man fatally shot by a police officer was under investigation for child sexual abuse.

The Daily Times reports (https://goo.gl/Exb31v) Bloomfield Police Chief Randy Foster confirmed last week that 61-year-old John Rogers was under investigation on suspicion of child sexual assault.

According to a search warrant affidavit, the investigation was related to multiple counts of criminal sexual penetration of minors.

Foster said for legal reasons he could not discuss the specifics of the case.

Jonathan Rogers, John Rogers’ son, referred questions to the family’s attorney, Brendan O’Reilly of Albuquerque. O’Reilly said he had no comment on the investigation.

New Mexico State Police say Rogers, who was fatally shot by police, was getting a gun out a vehicle’s glove box at the time of the shooting.
