Jesse Vigil (7806)



4/30/2013: Tularosa police were patrolling neighborhoods during a blackout caused by a fire. A Tularosa police officer recognized Vigil while he was checking on the elementary school, believing Vigil had a warrant for his arrest, he attempted to stop him. According to police, Vigil kept walking when the officer ordered him to stop. Vigil eventually stopped, but kept digging in his pockets after the officer told him to show his hands. The report indicates the Tularosa officer first pulled his Taser gun, but when the officer saw Vigil pull out the .22 caliber Crickett, the officer drew his gun. Gunfire was exchanged, Virgil was killed. http://www.alamogordonews.com/ci_23931097/grand-jury-finds-no-wrongdoing-tularosa-police-shooting
