Officers Involved In Shooting Man With Sword Back On-Duty
The two Las Cruces Police officers who were the first to respond to a sword-wielding man last month are back on active duty.
You may recall, 23 year-old Lance Hummell was shot to death while carrying the sword at the Mesilla Manor apartments.
The Las Cruces police chief believes Hummell was suicidal at the time.
A special task force is investigating whether the officer's decision to shoot Hummell was justifiable.
