FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say an armed man was fatally shot by law enforcement officers from three different agencies during a barricade situation stemming from an incident of domestic violence in the Farmington area.

At least one San Juan County sheriff’s deputy and officers from Farmington Police Department and the State Police on Monday shot a passenger in a parked SUV when he pointed a gun at the driver, the State Police said.

No identities were released.

Authorities had stopped the vehicle which was sought in connection with a reported beating of a woman by her husband, who was armed, the State Police said.
