New Mexico State Police have arrested the man they say was involved in a police shooting at a home in northwest Albuquerque.

Daniel Franco was taken into custody just before 8 p.m. after barricading himself inside a home near Sixth Street and Mountain. Franco surrendered peacefully.

Franco is accused of leading State Police on a chase near Lomas and Washington last Thursday. After a failed pit maneuver, an officer fired a shot at Franco. The officer later crashed into another car and Franco got away. 

Franco is facing multiple charges including aggravated fleeing and intent to commit a violent felony. Police say Franco also got into a fight with a man walking by his house and shot him in the leg two days before the police shooting.
