47-year-old Jose Hernandez was shot and killed on Monday in a southwest Albuquerque neighborhood. The army veteran had worked for the postal service for 12 years and was a father of four.
According to an arrest warrant, Hernandez was attempting to intervene in a domestic dispute between the murder suspect, 17-year-old Xavier Zamora, and his mother.

Police are still searching for Zamora.
