Names released, details slim in marshal shooting

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A few more details have been released about the deadly U.S. Marshal shooting that happened earlier this month in Albuquerque – specifically who was involved.

A city official confirms it was Deputy Marshal Kenneth Daniel who shot and killed Anthony Chavez on July 2 at a home near Dennis Chavez and 98th Street.

Officials say Chavez was on probation for transporting people illegally into the United States.
