Video: Postal carriers in one Los Angeles neighborhood afraid to deliver mail due to gang violence

GLASELL PARK, Calif. (FOX 11) – At first glance Drew Street is like many others in this Northeast Los Angeles neighborhood, however a long history of gang violence including a shooting on June 27 that almost killed a letter carrier has led to a big change in this neighborhood. 

The mail is no longer being delivered on the 3300 block, instead residents have to make about a five minute drive to the post office in nearby Eagle Rock and pick up their mail in person.

It’s an inconvenience of course but from the Postal Service this point to view the safety of their personnel takes priority.
