In broad daylight in the middle of a quiet Longmont neighborhood, the unthinkable happened. A domestic violence incident resulted in a woman murdering her ex-boyfriend, a USPS worker while he was delivering mail in a Longmont neighborhood.

According to KDVR, Devan Schreiner, a 26-year-old woman was arrested and booked for 1st-degree murder for shooting and killing her ex-boyfriend, a mail carrier who was on the job at the time.

Police said the woman was booked at the Longmont Police Department and later moved to the Boulder County jail.

Witnesses heard multiple gunshots just after noon in a normally very quiet neighborhood; in fact, a grandmother was understandably shaking at the incident, stating that just a couple of hours before, she was playing outside with her grandchildren.
