Part 8 of 10 @CopsConsTV obtained New Mexico State Police body camera of footage from a civilian witness named Jonathan Munroe. He witnessed the traffic stop of Officer Darian Jarrott and Omar Cueva.
Jonathon advised he was a witness. Jonathon said he was driving down the road, saw the police officer, the vehicle, it was a pull over. He said, “No big deal, white pickup, State Police pulled him over, someone getting a ticket.” As Jonathon got closer, the police officer started to move funny. Kind of like there was a tussle and he started to move up and down away from the road. Jonathon said he heard one distinct shot.
Jonathon stated he saw the man with the rifle. “The other guy was a man, I saw that” he said. Jonathon saw him with a rifle and as he passed, he smelt gun powder. He remembers it was a white pickup.

Jonathon said he smelt the smoke. He stated gun powder has a very distinct smell.
Jonathon advised the suspect looked like a red neck type and the rifle looked like the ones HSI was carrying. Jonathon stated when he showed back up, he got to see the officer and pulled his vest off and he got to see the wounds. Jonathon told me he wrote a statement and gave it to one of the HSI agents.
