ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Albuquerque Police say a SWAT situation in the Northwest part of town closed streets in the area of Irving and Golf Course for a short time Sunday.

Police say someone was threatening to commit suicide by cop and has a loaded gun.

APD had the person “contained” inside a perimeter as the department’s SWAT team zeroed in on the subject.

Police were advising people stay away from the area, as the suicidal person was considered to be a danger to the public.
