I'm not finding any coverage on the police standoff that happened on Valentine's day-- between noon and who knows-- yesterday in Las Cruces. The #60 bus was diverted away from Triviz and Missouri and just drove down Walnut/Idaho to Solano until it could make a right turn and get back on route. The driver was told that a ten-block radius was cordoned off until further notice. No news updates after that. Expected it on the news last night, but I don't think there was any coverage.

Not sure exactly what happened as the police were very hush hush about it. But I do know the address that it happened was on La Fonda and they had snipers on roofs!

Heard from someone who lives in the area who also works in a diner I frequent that someone had barricaded themselves in their apartment there and hostages may have been involved. Thanks for the update.
Still wonder why it wasn't all over the news, though.
