Albuquerque shooting suspect arrested after SWAT situation

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A man involved in a SWAT situation Thursday night was wanted in connection to a deadly shooting.

Gabriel Mariscal, 30, barricaded himself inside an apartment on Coors and Paseo del Norte, and was finally arrested late Thursday night.

Police say he was one of two suspects in a shooting Wednesday near Second Street and Montano that left a woman in critical condition.

The other suspect, 22-year-old Morgan Quarles III, is still on the loose.

Dozens of cars were lined up along Coors Thursday night waiting to get into the San Miguel del Bosque apartment complex.

Just before 1 a.m., Albuquerque Police tweeted out that the scene has been resolved and all residents are now allowed back inside.

More than 300 people live at this apartment complex and residents tell us that since 6:45 p.m. Thursday night, police would not let anybody walk or drive into the complex.

Residents say those who were leaving were checked by police to make sure they weren’t the suspect they were looking for.

Some residents we spoke to say they were even told to find another place to stay.
