New Mexico State Police Chief Pete Kassetas said at a press conference Sunday afternoon that a San Juan County deputy, with help from an NMSP officer, stopped a truck that had three people in it after connecting the vehicle with an earlier theft of a trailer.

The officer and deputy were in the process of arresting the passengers when one of them, William Wilson, shot at the NMSP officer, Kassetas said. The officer returned fire along with the deputy, and Wilson was killed.
