ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — An ex-convict accused of fatally shooting an Albuquerque police officer two months ago has been indicted on narcotics trafficking and firearms violations.

Federal prosecutors announced Thursday that 34-year-old Davon Lymon is charged in a three-count indictment with distributing heroin on Sept. 11 and Oct. 2 along with unlawfully possessing a firearm in Bernalillo County on Oct. 2.

They say Lymon is prohibited from possessing firearms after being convicted previously of felony offenses in two state court cases.

Lymon was arrested hours after Officer Daniel Webster was shot multiple times during an Oct. 21 traffic stop outside a pharmacy.

The 47-year-old former Army Ranger died eight days later in a hospital, having suffered gunshot wounds to his upper body and jaw.

A judge has ordered Lymon to remain jailed pending trial.
