New Mexico State Police tactical teams arrived in Ranchos de Taos Thursday afternoon (Jan. 10) and surrounded a residence where a man has reportedly barricaded himself inside.
Lieutenant Mark Soriano confirmed that state police have surrounded the residence, which appears to be located within a cluster of trailers off of Camino de Corazon.
Soriano said "a male subject with an active warrant" was somewhere inside the home, but would not provide the man's name or say whether he was armed.
A man known to live in the vicinity, and whose name was provided by an anonymous source, was arrested in May on two warrants connected to domestic violence cases. Law enforcement, however, has not yet confirmed it is the same man involved in Thursday's incident.
A deputy at the scene confirmed after 3 p.m. that multiple other people were inside the home and that two had been "extracted," but more may still be inside.
Members of the Taos County Sheriff's Office are also on scene at the residence and are redirecting traffic away from the area.
This is a developing story.
