ALBUQUERQUE — The man who was shot by Albuquerque police after raising a .22-caliber rifle toward officers was at the same time being sought by probation officers, the state Corrections Department said on Friday.
Dennis Aragon, who has an extensive criminal record that includes 23 arrests, was shot by Albuquerque police officer Mike Hill on Thursday and remains in critical condition. He is expected to survive.
The probation officers were looking for Aragon because he had missed a visit with his probation officer on Tuesday, a Corrections Department news release said. Aragon, 41, had begun probation supervision on March 16.
