Officers Involved In Shooting Man With Sword Back On-Duty
Monday, August 9, 2010 - 8:49pm

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.
