SANTA Fe NM Dec 13 2016 Santa Fe New Mexico Home Depot loss prevention agents were shot at by a suspected shoplifter after they approached about the theft.
The suspect quickly fled the store and soon was pursued by several law enforcement agencies.
SFPD Public Information Officer Greg Gurule said officers pursued the suspect until he got close to the south part of town when the police chief called it off, Gurule said.
The suspect appeared to have fired through the roof, Gurule said, and no one was injured.
Officers are interviewing witnesses and looking at surveillance footage from the store’s security camera.
Several law enforcement agencies are still looking for the suspect who fled from the store in a tan van-like vehicle Monday.
