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.

KPLC spoke with officials in DeRidder and Beauregard and is investigating Montano's criminal record, which includes a 2006 conviction for manslaughter in Texas. We will have more on-air and online as the story develops.
