ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico — New Mexico State Police say two officers fired shots at a woman's vehicle as she fled from a criminal investigation in northeast Albuquerque.

Police say officers were trying to serve an arrest warrant on 27-year-old Kayenta Jackson about 6 a.m. Tuesday.

They say she was wanted on suspicion of fraud and forgery and taken into custody.

When agents went to Jackson's home, they say 28-year-old Roxanne Torres fled in a vehicle.

Police say two officers fired shots at the vehicle and an investigation is underway to determine why they opened fire.

Authorities say Torres crashed her vehicle, allegedly fled in a stolen SUV and drove to a hospital in Grants for treatment of a gunshot wound.

Police say Torres later was airlifted to University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque.
