[The primary action in this video takes place in the first few minutes.]
On July 17, 2017 Las Cruces Police Officer Kenneth Davis responded to the 1700 block of Rio Grand Street after a caller said a suspicious person who may be armed with a knife was in the area.
Davis saw the man, later identified as Ernesto Sedillo, entering the back of a black Honda sedan parked on Arizona Avenue. As Davis approached the vehicle Sedillo pointed a handgun at the officer, who responded by firing eight rounds, four of which struck Sedillo.
At the time, however, it was unknown to the police whether any of the shots had hit and officers were unable to see into the vehicle. For all they knew, the offender was hiding there waiting for his next opportunity to open fire.
As you will see in a subsequent video, the Las Cruces Police Department SWAT team was called in to make contact with the man. Ultimately they were unable to do so — for reasons suspected, and later confirmed when upon officers’ ultimate approach to the vehicle found Sedillo unresponsive with a gunshot wound to the head. A 9mm handgun and a knife were found with Sedillo in the backseat.
