CBS News reported:

A police officer who authorities say attempted to chase down a 38-year-old man with three active arrest warrants was fatally shot by the suspect Friday after an exchange of gunfire in a southern New Mexico town.

The suspect, Joseph Moreno, also was killed in the morning shootout near a trailer park in Alamogordo, police said at a news conference. The desert town of about 31,000 people is home to the White Sands National Monument and Holloman Air Force Base.

Police identified the slain officer as Clint Corvinus, a four-year veteran who graduated from high school in Alamogordo.

Jen at Double Nickle Farm reported:
It is with a heavy heart that I must update my previous post with this news. A city police officer was killed this morning in our little community. We on the farm know this young officer, and his loss is devastating to each and every one of us. Since early this morning we have been coming to terms with this and the people of Alamogordo have been amazing in their love and support.

With deepest sympathy the farm announces the loss of

Officer Clint Corvinus.
