ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Bernalillo County authorities say a man is dead following a shootout with deputies on the northern edge of Albuquerque.

Sheriff Manuel Gonzales told reporters Friday the man had opened fire on deputies after barricading himself inside a home. Four deputies returned fire.

When SWAT team members eventually entered the home, they found the man dead from multiple gunshot wounds.

Authorities were waiting for positive identification but they believe he is the same man that prompted a call early Friday about a possible aggravated assault in which a man was accused of pointing a gun at his father.

Gonzales confirmed that deputies have been called to the home before.

This is the second time deputies have opened fire this week. A domestic violence suspect was shot and critically injured on Sunday.
