Video shows aggravated battery suspect’s run-in with police

Crime

New video shows what led up to a police shooting in Artesia late last year. 

State Police say members of a drug task force were trying to arrest Ronnie Dunnavant back in October on outstanding warrants for aggravated battery. They pulled him over, but video shows Dunnavant put the truck in reverse and take off. 

Agent Gilbert Gomez with the Eddy County Sheriff’s Department fired a shot. Sheriff’s deputies found Dunnavant at a home on 40th Street and Richardson Avenue where he barricaded himself inside. 

Dunnavant eventually surrendered and was taken into custody.
