Chaotic dashcam video of a December police chase ended with one suspect apparently shooting himself.

Albuquerque police say officers chased three shoplifting suspects in a stolen vehicle on Dec. 27. A New Mexico State Police officer joined the chase when he noticed erratic driving on I-25 heading north.

The officers followed the vehicle onto a dirt road near Placitas when the suspects got out and started shooting at police.

State police officials said the officers never returned fire. Two of the suspects were arrested. Police said the third suspect apparently died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

He was identified as 36-year-old Jaycob Gabaldon.
