After weeks on the run, police catch murder suspect

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – After weeks on the run, Albuquerque police say they’ve nabbed a murder suspect.

Cory Chandler, 30, is accused of gunning down a man near Zuni and Pennsylvania late last month.

Police found 42-year-old Harvey Saavedra shot to death near a mobile home park.

APD says surveillance video from a nearby home captured Chandler with a gun running from the scene.

Chandler was in court Saturday where we learned prosecutors believe this case warrants his ability to not bond out of jail. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
