NACO - The Cochise County Sheriff's Department is on the scene of an officer involved shooting in Naco. The shooting comes less than a day after a Border Patrol Agent was shot and killed in the area.
The Cochise County Sheriff's Department tells News 4 Bisbee Police were pursuing a motorcyclist who failed to yield on Naco Highway. When the motorcyclist finally stopped, the suspect fired at officers, who returned fire. The suspect then ran off.
Cochise County Sheriff's Department officials tell News 4, officers were later called to another scene after a report of a man with gunshot wounds. News 4 is told the person shot turned out to be the suspect.
His condition is not known at this time. It is not known if any officers were hit in the shooting.
Cochise County Sheriff's officials tell News 4 they are involved in the investigation because while Bisbee Police were involved in the pursuit, the shooting happened on county land.
News 4 has a crew on the way and will update the story as more details become available.
