SWAT team finds man dead from self-inflicted gunshot wound

SWAT team officers who were responding to a call about a 45-year-old man armed with a gun in the South Valley on Monday found him dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound inside the house.

Jayme Fuller, a spokeswoman for the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office, said around noon on Jan. 16 deputies were called to the 600 block of Nowicki SW, near 2nd and Valley High SW.

“Upon arrival, deputies contacted a male and female subject as they exited the residence and advised their son was armed with a gun,” Fuller said. “Deputies learned at least one round was fired inside the house and confirmed charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.”

Fuller said the initial round had been fired before deputies arrived. They set up a perimeter, began announcements for him to exit and called in the SWAT team and the Crisis Negotiation Team.

“The male subject refused to comply, and chemical munitions were introduced into the home,” Fuller said. “After hours of attempts to gain compliance, New Mexico State Police deployed a drone into the residence and discovered the male subject unresponsive.”

She said around 8 p.m. the SWAT team’s medical personnel entered the house and declared the man dead. The Office of the Medical Investigator determined he had shot himself.

The Multi-Agency Task Force is investigating the incident.
