LAS CRUCES - NMSU police said Tuesday the 28-year-old student shot by a police officer is in stable condition at UMC in El Paso.

Two officers responded immediately and both were wearing body cameras.

Officials said body camera footage shows the student, armed with a gun, making threats.

The student allegedly disobeyed the officer's orders to drop his weapon.

The officer shot the student in the leg and called for medical help.
