Authorities with APD, FBI, and the United States Postal Inspection Service took Xavier Zamora into custody near Tower and Unser without incident.

Zamora initially evaded arrest Monday night after an hours-long standoff with police, not far from where he was arrested.

Police believe Zamora shot and killed Jose Hernandez after the mail carrier tried to diffuse a domestic violence situation between Zamora and his mother.

Zamora is being charged with an open count of murder.
