RIO RANCHO, N.M. — Police cars were on both sides of Lema Road at midday Friday, to resolve a standoff. Rio Rancho Fire Rescue personnel waited, in case needed, on the north side of Western Hills Drive. Rio Rancho Police Capt. Andrew Rodriguez said officers believed a woman was barricaded in a home in the 2300 block of Lema. RRPD’s SWAT team and State Police tried to negotiate with her to come out, but had to enter the home that afternoon. Rodriguez said the woman was believed to have shot a man earlier in the day, causing non-life-threatening injuries. Although the standoff ended, detectives were still investigating at press time, and he said he couldn’t release more information at the time. No danger to the public remained.
