Pueblo police have released the names of the two people involved in a shooting Saturday evening that led to a deadly standoff with SWAT officers. Alvino Hidalgo, 43, was shot by Frankie Martinez, 66, during an altercation around 5:30 Saturday evening near Gaylord Avenue and Bay State Avenue on Pueblo's south side. Hidalgo ran off and called police, telling them that Martinez had fled to a nearby apartment, where police surrounded him and urged him to come out. When he refused, members of the SWAT team were brought in to handle the situation. Eventually, Martinez opened a door and pointed a gun at officers, who then opened fire. Martinez died from his wounds on-scene. Hidalgo was taken to a local hospital where he was last reported to be in intensive care with a gunshot wound to the chest.
