Man taken into custody following SWAT situation

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A stand-off unfolded in southeast Albuquerque after an armed suspect with several outstanding felony warrants was spotted on Georgia Street Southeast near Kathryn and Louisiana.

Officers approached with caution, but they couldn’t get the man to leave the house.

Eventually, they saw him exit then re-enter the home.

SWAT officers responded to the scene.

Finally, just after 1 a.m. Monday, the suspect was taken into custody without incident.

Police identified him as 32-year-old Patrick Martinez.

KRQE News 13 expects to learn more about him later Monday. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
