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.
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.
