ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A chase at speeds over 100 mph through the West Side, Rio Rancho and the North Valley early this morning ended when an Albuquerque police officer shot and killed the man being chased.

Police spokesman John Walsh said four patrol cars were rammed as officers tried to stop the man, and that one officer was injured when his vehicle was hit.

The chase began around 1:30 a.m. on Coors Boulevard Northwest when an officer tried to pull over a red Chevrolet pickup truck that had no license plate, Walsh said.
