The defendant died in a shootout with police following a 40 mile chase
A New Mexico police officer had been shot and killed during a traffic stop that put a 40-mile chase before this season, finishing with the defendant also perishing in a shootout with authorities.
Officer Darian Jarrott pioneered the February traffic stop Omar Felix Cueva, who authorities say was on his way to Las Cruces to get a medication deal.
Authorities stated Cueva needed a"violent criminal background," including drug charges between cocaine and meth.
After Officer Jarrott, that had been talking to Cueva throughout the passenger windowasked him to step from the automobile, Cueva got from the pickup truck using an AR-15-style gun and fired a shot in Jarrott.
Jarrott dropped to the floor, where point Cueva fired a few more shots , including one in point-blank range into the rear of the mind.
Law enforcement finally ceased Cueva by blowing his tires with tire deflation devices.
Ahead of Cueva's pickup truck came to a halt, bystander video reveals him exit his car using a pistol and open fire officers, who returned fire and killed Cueva.
Officer Darian Jarrott, who had three little children and was anticipating a fourth one this season, has been sworn in as a New Mexico State Police officer in July 2015. He also worked as a Transport Inspector for the New Mexico Department of Public Safety prior to that.
"When there was a scenario which was demanding, the man was always grinning," Mexico State Police Chief Robert Thornton stated in February.
