Hernandez's Bishop tells KOAT he was an Army veteran, husband and father of four.
The shooting happened in the 700 block of Terracotta SW, which is near Tower Road and 98th Street.
Xavier Zamora's mother told police Hernandez was trying to help her, but Zamora became "aggressive" with the mailman because he tried using Mace on the teen.
