A SWAT standoff in Albuquerque involving a man who police say shot and wounded an officer, turned deadly. And for the first time, KOB Eyewitness News 4 got to hear the Albuquerque Police Department’s multiple requests to get the two brothers to surrender.
A lapel camera on one of the officer’s on the scene caught some of the standoff. The video doesn’t catch any gunfire but it does show - up close - the dangerous situation officers were in.
More than a dozen police officers from multiple agencies surrounded the apartment building on Constitution in March. “Kendall and Michael, come out with your hands up,” said one officer over a megaphone.
In the lapel video, a police officer is on the ground holding a gun. You can also hear another officer urging the Carroll brothers to surrender.
“Kendall and Michael, you are surrounded. You need to come out with your hands in the air,” said an officer.
The standoff went on for hours. Meanwhile, inside the apartment, Kendall Carroll calls 911.
“Yeah, I want to talk to the police outside. I want to talk to the lady outside,” said Kendall Carroll to the operator.
The operator asks Kendall Carroll multiple times if he would walk outside.
He responds with, “No - I’m kind of in the middle of something. I need to talk to the police outside. I’m surrounded and I would like to talk to them. My name is Kendall,” said Kendall Carroll, who never got to talk to police.
His brother, Michael, eventually came out. When Kendall finally did, he was shot to death by a state police officer.
Police told KOB Eyewitness News 4 the brothers fired multiple shots at offices over the hours long standoff.
