SWAT situation shuts down northeast Albuquerque intersection

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE)– A SWAT standoff in a neighborhood near the Lomas and Louisiana has police urging residents to stay inside.

It started around 1 p.m. Sunday afternoon when police say officers approached a stolen car that was stalled in the intersection of Chama and Marquette. Police say a man in the car then barricaded himself inside.

SWAT negotiators are on site trying to get a man out, but police say the car’s tinted windows are making it tough to see what’s going on inside.

Information is limited at this time.

KRQE will provide updates as details are made available.
