A suspect who had been identified to law enforcement as Alberto Pastrana fled the scene.

Officers immediately began to search the area for the suspect/suspect vehicle and at 12:14 p.m. the vehicle was located on the Northside of Pecos traveling Westbound on F. Street. Officers began to pursue the vehicle which traveled towards the 1600 Block of W.
