Deputy City Attorney Kathryn Levy told the Albuquerque Journal that Deputy Marshal Kenneth Daniel shot and killed 27-year-old Anthony Jacob Chavez on 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 here in Luna County.
Chavez reportedly worked in Albuquerque as an independent landscaping contractor. He was married, and had a 10-year-old son and an eight-year-old daughter.
The Albuquerque Police Department is leading the investigation into the shooting. Albuquerque officers also were working with Deputy Marshal Daniel on a federal fugitive task force when the shooting occurred.
