From an Albuquerque Journal story by Jeff Proctor, APD officer fired gun as fellow cop attacked

Albuquerque police officers fired nine shots from close range at a knife-wielding Vietnam veteran who had been living for years with mental illness during a rapidly unfolding incident outside a convenience store in the heart of the city, officials said.

At a news conference on Monday, Police Chief Ray Schultz identified the two officers who shot and killed 66-year-old Vincent Wood on Friday as rookie Jeff Bludworth and Katherine Wright, who has been with APD since 2009.
