ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Police in Albuquerque say one suspect is in custody and a second is being sought after an officer was shot at when he tried to pull over a suspected impaired driver.

Police say the officer wasn’t injured in the incident early Saturday.

They say 31-year-old Johnny Kocsmar was taken into custody.

He remains jailed on suspicion of aggravated assault on a police officer, fleeing from a police officer, auto theft and conspiracy.

Kocsmar told police he got into a car at a grocery store because he saw the keys in the ignition and he wanted to warm up.

Kocsmar says he then picked up a man, who told him to start driving around.

Around 4 a.m., an officer tried to pull the stolen car over for a DWI stop.
