LONGMONT, Colo. (KDVR) – A woman was arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of a postal worker in Longmont.
The man’s ex-girlfriend is now in jail on charges of first degree murder.
Now a memorial is growing where the postman was shot. Collete Larson made flowers for the postman and the neighbors who wanted to save him.
“All I know is that they are heartbroken and still feel the trauma heavily this morning,” said Larson.
Court records show custody battle prior to the shooting of the Longmont postal worker
Postal worker Jason Schaefer was delivering mail when he was shot. Now his ex-girlfriend Devan Schreiner is charged with killing him.
Court records show that a fight was brewing between the two.
“Jason filed parental leave changes two days before the shooting,” the affidavit said.
“Devan should be served with the papers,” said the investigators’ affidavit.
Investigators were told Devan threatened Jason.
Victim, shooter, worked together at the Longmont Post Office
The two had worked together at the Longmont Post Office, but Schreiner was fired two weeks ago and started working as a postman in Loveland.
She was on duty on the day of the shooting, but her mail van was not moved for hours.
On Thursday, 47 postbuses led a procession to commemorate their colleagues.
Late on Thursday afternoon, people who told us they were relatives would sit in front of the mailboxes and sometimes touch them. They did not say how they were related to the postman or the suspect.
Schreiner was supposed to make a first appearance in front of a judge on Thursday. This gig has been postponed to next week.
