ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A carjacking suspect is at large a day after police say he pointed a gun at officers and fled in a stolen vehicle.

Police identified the suspect Thursday as 38-year-old Oscar Anchondo. He is suspected in three recent armed carjackings and three armed robberies.

Police Chief Gorden Eden says he is also wanted on a probation violation.

According to police, Anchondo drove away as two other carjacking suspects were being taken into custody Wednesday. He prompted an officer to fire at the moving vehicle after brandishing his weapon in the getaway.

Officers tracked the vehicle to a trailer park in northeast Albuquerque, where Eden said officers believed the suspect was hiding. They established a secured a perimeter around the area for hours, but by the end of the day, learned he wasn’t there.
