A suspect is at large after being shot at by Socorro police. 

State Police say Socorro officers attempted to pull a car over on State Road 1 and Smith Street on Sunday, but the driver concealed his identity and then took off. 

The man eventually ditched his vehicle and fled on foot, then stole an F-250 from a Socorro city yard. 

As officers continued to pursue the man, one officer started shooting. Police eventually called off the pursuit near Veguita without taking the suspect into custody. It’s unclear if the suspect was hit by the gunfire.
