State Police investigate officer-involved shooting in Silver City

Michael Aguirre arrest

Michael Aguirre arrest

A former Grant County Sheriff's deputy who reportedly cut off his ankle monitor in Las Cruces, tied up his mother and escaped to Silver City is recovering from a gunshot wound after trying to ram a police auto with a stolen SUV.

Investigators say the shooting happened just before 1:30 a.m. Thursday morning when dispatchers in Grant County were told to be on the lookout for a white 2002 Toyota 4-runner that had been reported stolen in Las Cruces.

Grant County Regional Dispatch was notified to be on the lookout for the vehicle and at around 1:22 a.m., deputies located the vehicle and got into a short pursuit, which was eventually taken over by Silver City Police. Aguirre allegedly hit a Silver City police auto, prompting the officer to fire shots, hitting Aguirre in the neck. The officer then fired at the suspect and hit him in the neck.

Aguirre is recovering from "non-life-threatening injuries" at University Medical Center in El Paso and will be arrested by Las Cruces police as soon as he's released.

NMSP said that earlier this year Aguirre was charged with domestic violence and receiving a stolen firearm on two separate cases. A trial for those charges are still pending, according to court records.

The name of the officer has not yet been released.
