Albuquerque police sergeant recounts August shootout that injured four officers – Albuquerque, New Mexico

Albuquerque, New Mexico 2021-09-22 00:23:42 –

“This call was made as an armed robbery at Manzano High School and was clearly intriguing to me,” Kenny said.

Instead, he appeared in Juan Tabo and Copper.

“I’m just around the corner of Juan Tabo. I think I’m right next to the Big O. I see Mario and James Ichel running down the alley,” Kenny said. “I made a U-turn when I saw them run down the alley. I’m heading south on Juan Tabo. I hear gunshots in the car on the radio, but there are many. “

Kenny said he definitely wore a rifle plate carrier, such as a bulletproof vest, except that he could stop the rifle from firing.

After he pulled into the Dutch Brothers parking lot:

“The suspect appears to my right and I’m in the driver’s seat. I’m not ready for this,” Kenny said.

Kenny said he got out of the car and fired several times.

“I went around behind and noticed that they were all full because there were a lot of cars in the Dutch Brother parking lot and I could see their faces. So I’m back to another plan.”

He said the shootout lasted for a long time — one and a half to two minutes. When a police officer arrested the suspect James Ramirez, another police officer inspected Kenny and confirmed that he had not been beaten.

“He points to the middle of my chest and says,’Hey, is that hole new?'” I go, “What hole?” I look down, oh, I saw it I don’t remember, he starts to feel around “I think you were struck” Sure, I got a small notebook, he pulls it out, it has a hole in it And I’m yeah, I’m like being beaten. “

Kenny said the suspect was ready for the fight.

“This guy planned. He knew 100% of what he was doing. 100%. He had a lot of ammo, he had a lot of magazines, and that was We were ready to go to war with someone, whether we or the people he robbed. “

But in the end, Kenny said he was alive and happy.

“For the 27 years since I did this, I’ve done some crazy things. It was the scariest thing in my life. I didn’t expect to see my wife and son again.”

There is no body camera footage of the incident from Kenny, as it somehow turned off his body camera when Kenny put on the rifle plate carrier.
