A New Mexico police officer was fatally stabbed by a trespasser, who was in turn shot and killed by a bystander.
It happened Sunday evening in Las Cruces, when officer Jonah Hernandez was called to investigate reports of a trespasser.
After Hernandez was stabbed, a ‘citizen bystander’ who witnessed the attack shot and killed the suspect, then called for help using the police radio.
The suspect was a 29-year-old man. The identity of the suspect or the witness have not been made public.
