High Speed Chase Starts in Friona, Ends in Clovis With Shooting

New Mexico State Police are investigating an officer-involved shooting that landed one person in the hospital after a 40 mile chase from Friona to Clovis.

The shooting involved the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Parmer County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities say a Texas State Trooper pulled over 39 year old Jawayne Helfferich of Clovis Saturday morning outside Friona.

We are told Helfferich then sped off.  The trooper followed, along with Parmer County Sheriff's deputies and the Friona Police Department.

The chase ended outside Clovis when a Texas trooper fired shots and wounded Helfferich.

He is in serious condition at a Lubbock hospital and is charged with evading arrest or detention in a motor vehicle.
