Teacher creates fundraiser for family after suspect barricaded himself in home


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Last week, Bernalillo County Sheriff says Ricardo Carrillo broke into a South Valley home and demanded keys from the homeowner.

At some point, she was able to lock him inside the garage, which led to a SWAT standoff.

She and her two kids were able to escape the home, but Carrillo remained inside causing some significant damage. Carrillo was eventually arrested.

Now, a Carlos Rey Elementary teacher is asking for donations to help the family.

He says the woman is battling cancer, and the kids will soon head to school.
