2. A scary situation for APD overnight. It started just like the situation yesterday morning, and in the same area near Zuni and Wyoming. Officers say a man was pointing a gun a people and when police spotted him, he pointed a gun at them. The man then jumped in a stolen car, according to police, and fled. The man later ditched the car near Rio Bravo and Isleta and took off on foot. An APD canine officer caught up with him, and the man was taken into custody.

Time for the five things you need to know before you go this morning.

  1.  Lots of people, especially parents, are talking about this. The 14-year-old girl from Albuquerque who had an Amber Alert out for her for almost three weeks has been found. U.S. Marshals say she was with Robert Butler,26, in Fort Smith, Arkansas. Investigators say the two met online and took off last month.
  2. This is still making headlines all across the country the article from Mother Jones magazine and some audio of Governor Martinez and her staff ridiculing her opponents, women, teachers and more. The governor is responding now, but she’s not apologizing.
  3. If you’re thinking about making the pilgrimage to Santuario de Chimayo or Tome Hill, it’s time to get a move on. Hundreds of the faithful are making the trek to pray and reflect on the meaning of Good Friday. If you’re driving through these areas, remember to look out for people walking.
  4. We hope you have a safe and Happy Easter this weekend. Lots of churches have sunrise service and you can always go to the big one at University Stadium at 7:30 a.m. on Sunday. For more Easter fun, head to KRQE.com and click on links.
  5. Better keep that umbrella handy it could rain this weekend.

The girl was able to get away, police don’t know who the guy is.

2. Not what we want to hear on a dry week, but there are fires in the Bosque. Firefighters have been out all night long looking for hotspots after a number of fires overnight…some with flames six feet tall. these were in the area off Atrisco almost a mile south of I-40. Investigators haven’t said how they started.
