Postal worker shooting highlights dangers for mail carriers

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Local mail carriers are calling union leaders concerned after one of their own was shot on the job in west Charlotte Thursday.

National Association of Letter Carriers Branch 545 President Sylvin Stevens has been comforting letters carriers non-stop since the shooting.

“I’m wearing this ribbon in solidarity and support to Mr. McDaniels. I hope he gets well soon,” Stevens said.

Stevens said he went to the hospital to visit with the victim’s family Thursday night and learned carrier Ed McDaniels should recover.  Stevens remembers a similar crime in the past.
