ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office has released new information on a deputy-involved shooting last weekend that left a man dead.

They say one hour and 44 minutes elapsed between the time a deputy shot 44-year-old Billy Grimm and when first responders transported the man to a hospital, where he died around 5:30 p.m. Sunday.

An autopsy shows Grimm was shot once in the chest.

Sheriff’s officials say Grimm pulled out a weapon when officers responded to a report of a fight going on in a car parked in the South Valley area.

They say a loaded handgun was later found inside the truck Grimm had been driving.

Sheriff’s officials say Deputy Greg Grundhoffer is on standard paid administrative leave after the shooting,

He’s been with the department for three years.
