Shelter-in-place lifted for elementary


ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Officials placed Mission Avenue Elementary School on shelter-in-place due to police activity in the area Thursday.

The Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department says that they were dealing with a barricaded subject on Noble Ct. in northeast Albuquerque.

APS police were at the school to ensure the safety of students and stay. The shelter-in-place was lifted around 3:25 p.m.

BCSO and the APS Transportaion department worked together to coordinate a normal dismissal for the students. Students who normally walk home from school needed to be picked up by their parents. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
