DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. – Federal authorities are investigating a deadly shooting at a local post office.
Channel 2’s Nefertiti Jaquez learned Monday night a postal worker was seriously wounded when she was shot in the head on the job. She later died.
The shooting happened at the post office at Wesley Chapel Road and Snap Finger Road in Decatur.
DeKalb County police and U.S. postal inspectors swarmed the post office moments after shots rang out.
“It’s hard to understand,” said Michael Grogan, who witnessed the shooting. “He turned around and came back. Then two shots went off, then two more.”
Grogan doesn’t know who the shooter is, but he told Jaquez the man was hanging out at the laundromat next door before walking out, approaching the victim in the dock area and opening fire.
