We've learned more about yesterday's dramatic manhunt in El Paso.

It ended when officers shot Fernando Lavenant four times.

He's still in critical condition at a hospital.

Eight hours before, Lavenant overpowered a sheriff's detective while handcuffed after he was arrested at his mothers house in Vinton.

He took off in the detectives car along with its weapons and two-way radio.

An N-4 rifle is still missing.

Lavenant is just 19, but he has a long rap sheet that includes felony aggravated assault evading arrest, hit and run, assault and DWI.
