Truman Middle School in Albuquerque was put on lockdown Tuesday after a man being pursued by police ran into a home near the school.

Police said the man was spotted near the school. When officers approached him, he jumped into what police said was a stolen truck.

The man drove to a nearby home and barricaded himself. After a standoff with police, the man surrendered and is currently in custody.
