ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say the woman killed in Albuquerque after at least one sheriff’s deputy opened fire had a stolen loaded gun in a truck she had been driving before she was shot.

Bernalillo County sheriff’s deputies identified the woman Wednesday as 24-year-old Jaquelyn Burke, and said she had previously been accused of battery on a law enforcement officer and was being sought for violating her probation.

Authorities say Burke was shot Tuesday at an Albuquerque apartment complex along a busy boulevard as members of a federal law enforcement task force that includes the sheriff’s department attempted to execute an arrest warrant.

Sheriff Manuel Gonzales says authorities had attempted to take Burke into custody Tuesday morning at a nearby residence before she eventually fled to the apartment complex in a stolen truck.
