  • N.M. deputy shoots man who stole bus

    ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — The Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office says they shot a man who stole an unoccupied school bus in Grants before leading police on a chase along Interstate 40 in the Albuquerque area.
    Sheriff’s spokeswoman Jennifer Vega-Brown says that the man stole the bus from a company’s private yard before getting onto the interstate and heading toward Albuquerque on Friday morning.
    At some point, a police chase involving three separate agencies ensued.
    Vega-Brown says authorities deployed spike belts that deflated the tires on the bus, but that it still kept going.
    After authorities were able to get the bus stopped, Vega-Brown says a deputy shot the man but did not know why.

    The Labor Department also said Friday that December and January, already two of the best months for jobs since the recession, were even stronger than first estimated. It added 41,000 jobs to its total for January and 20,000 for December.
