City Official Ids Man Fatally Shot By US Deputy

Jul 10, 2014

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — An Albuquerque official has identified an alleged probation violator fatally shot by a deputy U.S. marshal in Albuquerque last week.

Deputy City Attorney Kathryn Levy told the Albuquerque Journal that Deputy Marshal Kenneth Daniel shot and killed Anthony Chavez July 2 at a home.

Levy says Chavez was on probation on a conviction for transporting people illegally in the United States. The conviction resulted from a 2010 arrest in Luna County.

Officials previously said a deputy marshal fatally shot a man sought on a probation violation arrest warrant but did not identify either man. They haven't said whether Chavez was armed.

The Albuquerque Police Department is leading the investigation into the shooting. Albuquerque officers also were working with Daniel on a federal fugitive task force when the shooting occurred.
