ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A man accused of firing shots at Albuquerque police and trying to steal a car at gunpoint is facing federal carjacking and firearms charges.

Federal prosecutors filed a criminal complaint Thursday in their case against 21-year-old Justin Brouillette of Albuquerque.

Brouillette was arrested Wednesday and police say he’s wanted on four felony warrants including aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

It was unclear Thursday if Brouillette has a lawyer yet and his initial court appearance hasn’t been scheduled.

A criminal complaint charges Brouillette with attempted carjacking, using and brandishing a firearm during and in furtherance of a crime of violence and being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition.

Court records show Brouillette has two felony convictions for receiving or transferring stolen vehicles in New Mexico’s Bernalillo County.
