ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say a shooting suspect who led law enforcement on a chase through Albuquerque was shot and transported to a hospital, where he died.

Bernalillo County Sheriff Manuel Gonzales says one Albuquerque police officer and two sheriff’s deputies have been placed on standard administrative leave as his agency investigates the officer-involved shooting Tuesday afternoon.

It hasn’t been determined which officer’s gunfire may have injured the suspect.

Gonzales says the suspect was being pursued by police for a shooting Tuesday morning and a series of carjackings. That shooting victim’s condition was not released.

Police are investigating the carjackings that happened earlier Tuesday.

Gonzales says the suspect was attempting to take a third car when he was shot.

The suspect’s and victim’s names have not been released.
