ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The Latest on the fatal shooting of an Albuquerque man involving U.S. marshals (all times local):

12:15 p.m.

The grandfather of an Albuquerque man shot and killed as federal marshals sought a murder suspect says the shooting was unjustified and the family was in the process of retaining an attorney.

New Mexico State Police say 23-year-old Edgar Camacho-Alvarado was killed Saturday after marshals went to a trailer park to arrest homicide suspect George Bond.

A spokesman for the U.S. Marshals office in Albuquerque has declined comment.

Juan Alvarado says law enforcement opened fire on his grandson Camacho-Alvarado as he was repairing his pickup truck outside the family’s trailer home.

The grandfather says shots also were fired as Comacho-Alvarado reached the trailer’s front stoop in an attempt to escape the gunfire.

Bond was arrested in the trailer park hours later.


7 a.m.

New Mexico authorities have released the identity of an Albuquerque man who they say was fatally shot during a confrontation with a deputy U.S. marshal.

New Mexico State Police say the man killed Saturday morning was 23-year-old Edgar Camacho-Alvarado and say he was shot after deputy marshals went to a trailer park to arrest a homicide suspect.

Details of the shooting have not been released but authorities say Camacho-Alvarado was not the wanted homicide suspect, George Bond.

Bond was arrested in the trailer park several hours after the shooting. He is charged in the July 2014 death of a Los Lunas man and was spotted Friday in Albuquerque but evaded capture.

The State Police Investigations Bureau is investigating the shooting incident.
