ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Police arrested an armed suspect in a northeast Albuquerque neighborhood Thursday night, nearly six hours after they say he shot at officers in a nearby Walmart parking lot.
Albuquerque police spokesman Simon Drobik said the suspect is in custody but he did not identify him.
Drobik said it all started as a suspicious person call around 4 p.m. at the Walmart near Chico and Eubank NE.
When officers arrived, he said, the man fired at them in front of the Walmart before fleeing into an adjacent neighborhood.
Drobik said no officers were injured and they did not return fire.
