Bernalillo County Sheriff's deputies apprehended a man peacefully following a SWAT situation that lasted for several hours.

51-year-old Cesario Ortiz surreendered to deputies and was taken into custody at around 4 p.m.

Ortiz barricaded himself in house at around noon Thursday as deputies responded to a domestic violence call, causing the lockdown of nearby Mission Avenue Elementary School.

Ortiz will be booked on domestic violence charges.
