ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - An attempt by U.S. Marshals to serve a warrant has led a shooting and a standoff with law enforcement in Albuquerque.

New Mexico State Police say shots were fired around 6 a.m. Saturday in the area of Central Avenue and Unser Boulevard.

Police say the U.S. Marshal Service was in the process of executing an arrest warrant when the incident occurred.

They did not say whether a police officer or a marshal opened fire.

There have also been no reports of injuries.

The Albuquerque Journal reports state and local police SWAT teams are surrounding a trailer and trying to make contact with people inside.

Residents in nearby trailer homes are being told to stay inside.
