New Mexico State Police are investigating a shooting involving an Isleta Pueblo police officer.

Investigators say the shooting happened last week near the Isleta Tribal Center.

Officer Henry Gabaldon was responding to a report of a suspicious person at the center. Investigators say the unidentified man was not cooperating with the officer and a struggle ensued after Gabaldon tried to restrain the man.

Investigators say the man had a weapon and Gabaldon reacted, shooting him once.

The man is in stable condition at an Albuquerque hospital, and Gabaldon was treated for minor injuries.

State police plan to complete their investigation and submit it to the Bernalillo County District AttorneyÂ’s Office for review.
