Video taken above I-10 in Las Cruces shows officers following a white truck driven by Omar Felix Cueva. Police say Cueva had just shot and killed Officer Jarrott after he pulled him over near Deming. Officers used a pit maneuver to stop Cueva’s truck.
The video appears to show Cuevae get out of his truck and walks right up to the driver’s side of a Las Cruces police officer’s cruiser and starts shooting. That officer was hit but he did survive. Police were able to fire back hitting Cueva, killing him. NMSP says Homeland Security had asked him to help with an investigation by pulling Cueva over.
