U.S. Postal Inspector: Mail carrier not responsible for shooting

August 9, 2018


A man who was dressed in a U.S. postal uniform and shot a resident in the 700 block of E.118 Street was not an actual postal worker.

U.S. Postal Inspector Tammy Mayle confirmed to Cleveland 19 on Tuesday afternoon that “a mail carrier was not responsible for the shooting.”

This, after a resident was approached by a male in a postal uniform on July 31 who then brandished a handgun and shot the victim in the leg two times.

The shooter fled in a burgundy vehicle, which was later located running nearby.

Cleveland Police stated at the time that “it had not been verified that the suspect was an actual postal employee.”

U.S. Postal Inspectors have now cleared any confusion or concern that one of their employees was involved.
