A former DeRidder resident was shot in Colorado after killing a mother and daughter in New Mexico Thursday, authorities said.

Dustin Montano, 31, is accused of killing Deborah Martinez and her 17-year-old daughter at an apartment complex in Albuquerque, New Mexico on Thursday, according to a news report from Albuquerque station KOAT.

Montano was found at a Walmart in Fort Morgan, Colorado, and shot by police. County deputies confronted Montano as he exited the Walmart. Officials said deputies shot him when he made a threatening gesture.

Officials with the Beauregard Sheriff's Office and the DeRidder Police Department say it is believed Montano was planning on making his way back to the Beauregard area.
