ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Bernalillo County authorities say a sheriff’s deputy fired at least one gunshot at an armed suspect sought in reported aggravated assault but that nobody was injured and that the suspect is in custody.

Deputy Felicia Maggard says the shooting and subsequent arrest occurred about an hour after the reported aggravated assault early Tuesday morning.

Maggard says a deputy spotted the suspect and saw that the suspect was armed but she did not provide additional information on what prompted the deputy to fire.

She says the suspect ran off and had a gun when taken into custody.
