Police talk down, arrest armed man

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – McCollum Elementary was placed on a brief lockdown Wednesday morning after a man with a gun was reported in the area.

The 911 caller said the man was making suicidal threats and yelled for someone to call police, according to APD. Then the caller said the man fired shots, police say.

APD confirms officers responded to the area of Lomas and Eubank around 7 a.m. and did find an armed man who was taken into custody. Police say he was pointing the gun at himself and they were able to talk him into putting it down.
