ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department says a carjacking suspect was fatally shot in an encounter with deputies after abducting two people and injuring a deputy.

The Sheriff’s Department says the incident happened Friday morning in the Isleta Pueblo area as law enforcement officers sought a man who initially was sought for attempting to steal a golf cart.

According to the department, the suspect broke into a home and abducted two people who then were seen and heard pounding on a window of their car and screaming for help.

The department says shots were fired by at least one pursuing deputy after the stolen vehicle was stopped but then pinned a deputy who was on foot.

The deputy was hospitalized with at least one broken bone. The hostage weren’t hurt.
