ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Police say a suspect is in custody following a SWAT situation at a northeast Albuquerque apartment.

According to police, Wednesday morning around 8:50 a.m. officers were sent to the 3500 block of Tulane NE in response to a violent domestic dispute.

Once officers arrived on scene, they made contact with the female victim but could not make contact with the male subject.

McKnight also had an outstanding felony warrant for his arrest, stemming from another domestic violence incident.
