Man arrested in morning SWAT

Estevan  Rivera

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A SWAT situation in Albuquerque’s northeast heights finally ended after nearly 12 hours.

The situation shut down part of Candelaria near Juan Tabo.

The initial call came out as a domestic violence situation at the lowest home improvement story.

A pregnant woman called police saying her boyfriend hit her.

The suspect, Estevan Rivera, ran from Lowes to his apartment on Candelaria east of Juan Tabo.

Negotiations teams eventually coaxed Rivera out of his home and he was arrested on felony charges. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
