ALBUQUERQUE, NM (AP) – One lawsuit alleges Albuquerque police wrongly killing a pipe-wielding man in a house during a 2018 encounter after police officers found him in a closet.
The lawsuit filed Tuesday by 24-year-old Daniel Saavedra’s sister said police should have tried to defuse the situation before entering the apartment and cornering Saavedra.
