GLORIETA, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico State Police say two officers are on leave following a shooting in Santa Fe County that left one man dead.
Police received a call Tuesday night about a road rage incident along Interstate 25. The caller provided a vehicle description and license plate.
Officers located the vehicle outside a home in Glorieta. People inside yelled that they had guns and three shots were fired.
The officers returned fire, striking and killing 34-year-old Samuel Pauly, who was armed with a pistol.
Thirty-two-year-old Daniel Pauly fled on foot with a shotgun. He later surrendered and was booked on charges of aggravated assault on an officer and evading an officer.
State police spokesman Lt. Tim Johnson says two officers were placed on standard paid administrative leave. He didn’t release their names.
