Deputy who shot woman during SWAT standoff returns to work


A deputy who shot a woman during a stand-off in the East Mountains last month is back at work this week. 

The Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office says they were serving an eviction notice at the home off Rainier Court on June 20. 

They say Yvette Curry would only talk with deputies through a window, and then began shooting at them, and a State Police helicopter. 

BCSO says Deputy Trevor Weeks, who is a member of the SWAT team, saw Curry pointing a shotgun at deputies through a window and shot her in the arm to end the hours-long standoff. 

This is his first shooting. 

Curry is still in the hospital. When she gets out, she’ll be booked into the Metropolitan Detention Center on four counts of aggravated assault on a peace officer. 

She may face more charges later. 

According to online court documents, Curry refused to leave the home as part of her divorce settlement.
