ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - The APD SWAT team was called out Saturday night to the same downtown area where a police gun battle began earlier in the day although it's not known if the two events are connected.
Officers converged on the home in the 800 block of Walter Street SE about five blocks from where Saturday morning's first gun battle erupted. Two officers were wounded in what sources told KRQE News 13 was an ambush.
A sheriff's deputy was shot later and the gunman killed at Fourth Street NW and Montaño in the North Valley.
A KRQE News 13 photojournalist at the SWAT scene reported the APD bomb squad deployed on of its robots as is did at the North Valley shooting scene.
Albuquerque police have released little information on the day's events and so far have said nothing about the SWAT callout.
Manners matter especially during the holiday season.

The final Toys for Tots collections have been made and the generosity of folks around Albuquerque has been great as always.
