    And y'all are saying BFD. Well if y'all knew where I was raised, this stuff never happens.

    Furthermore, the first I read about it was a paper I received from one of the cops involved, since I'm related to him. Read the article and there was something on the back page that caught my eye that more people around this country should take note of. It was a full page ad thanking the agencies involved.

    3-state manhunt ends near Clayton
    One woman killed, two others wounded in chase, shootout


    The Associated Press

    CLAYTON, N.M. (AP) - A woman was killed and her two companions were injured as a three-state manhunt for robbery suspects ended Monday evening with a shootout in northeastern New Mexico, state police said.

    A two-day chase had begun Sunday in Kansas, crossed Oklahoma and rolled into New Mexico on Monday morning. At one point a hostage was taken, then escaped or was released before the chase left Kansas, officers reported Monday night.

    Melinda Rothenay, 24, Stanley Fugate, 38, and Carrie Travis, 19, were sought in Dodge City, Kan., after a robbery-kidnapping Sunday night in which a man was stabbed, New Mexico State Police Lt. Rob Shilling said.

    Kansas authorities issued an "attempt to locate" bulletin seeking the group during the weekend, and Oklahoma highway patrol officers began a chase after encountering them, Shilling said.

    Shots were fired at the Oklahoma troopers, but nobody was injured, he said.

    "They were chased into New Mexico by Oklahoma authorities," Shilling said. Clayton is about 10 miles from the Oklahoma state line.

    The trio was found Monday afternoon north of Clayton near N.M. 370 after an all-day search, Shilling said. A state police tactical team came under fire around 5 p.m. and returned fire, he said. The suspects tried to run away.

    Officers contacted one of the women, who surrendered, and chased Fugate, who also surrendered around 6 p.m., Shilling said.

    The other female suspect, whose name was not immediately released, was found dead at the scene of the shootout.

    Details were sketchy, but Shilling said the hostage was freed or got away in Stevens County, Kan., on Sunday. The threesome then crossed into Oklahoma, where authorities pursued them by vehicle with police aircraft surveillance overhead.

    Tracked to Clayton, Union County sheriff's officials launched a search aided by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol aircraft.

    "They (the suspects) drove through fields, pastures, fences, gates, you name it," Shilling said.

    Local law enforcement officials, aided by a New Mexico state police helicopter and tactical team, found the suspects' vehicle 35 miles north of Clayton.

    Fugate has a long history of criminal charges including theft, aggravated robbery, receiving stolen property and resisting arrest, Shilling said. Rothenay had a previous charge of obstructing government operations.
