Shiprock, New Mexico — This incident started in Shiprock, NM at approximately 1:25 p.m on July 11, 2021. The Navajo Police Department was notified of a subject, later identified as 36-year-old Shawn Thomas, brandishing a firearm at the Speedway Gas Station at US Hwy 64 and Hwy 491. While enroute, officers were notified the suspect left the scene in a blue Toyota Corolla. Navajo PD officers pursued the vehicle east on US Highway 64, at which time, the suspect traveled off the Navajo Nation where San Juan County Sheriff’s Office patrol deputies intercepted the vehicle. After deputies successfully deployed stop sticks and deflated two tires, the vehicle came to a stop where deputies issued commands to exit the vehicle. The vehicle began driving again, traveling approximately 1.4 miles where he momentarily stops two different times.

Beginning to flee again, the suspect proceeds to do a U-turn where deputies observe Thomas point a firearm out the window as he begins to travel back west on US 64. The vehicle eventually stopped between the 33- and 34-mile markers. As SJCSO deputies approached the vehicle, the deputy at the rear of the vehicle observed a firearm in Thomas’ hand, pointed in the direction of his sergeant, and responded to the threat by firing at the subject. The vehicle began to drive off and eventually crashed into a tree and caught fire. Deputies extracted the suspect from the vehicle to render medical aid while EMS and SJC Fire & Rescue were enroute. The suspect, Shawn Thomas, did succumb to his injuries on location. No officers or uninvolved citizens were injured.

  1. I like to see this type of content since in my country you can not shoot the thieves without people there complaining about it because they did it, being that the thieves open fire or attempt against the life of the policeman, in fact sometimes they end up firing the policeman who killed or harmed the thief.
