ESPAÑOLA, N.M. — Police in Española opened fire on a burglary suspect after he allegedly slipped out of his handcuffs and fled behind the wheel of the very squad car in which he was being held Monday afternoon.

Josh Quintana, 25, was shot once in the neck and once in the thigh. Two officers fired the shots into the squad car in which Quintana was driving away after he and four other suspects were arrested at the scene of a north-side burglary, according to Española Police Chief Julian Gonzales.
