ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Officials have identified one of the five people found shot to death in a New Mexico home as a Fire Department chaplain who also worked with jail inmates.

Albuquerque Fire Chief James Breen says Greg Griego's calming spirit and gentle nature will be greatly missed.

Metropolitan Detention Center Chief Ramon Rustin says Griego volunteered at the jail for 13 years and was instrumental in the creation of its chaplain program.

The Bernalillo County sheriff's department has yet to release the names of anyone found dead Saturday night in the rural home south of Albuquerque. However, they have confirmed that a 15-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of murder and other crimes in connection with the shooting.

Detectives are still processing evidence at the home Sunday afternoon.
