CHARLOTTE, NC (FOX 46 WJZY) – The family of mail carrier Ed McDaniel, who was shot in West Charlotte on August 31st while just doing his job, tells Fox 46 Charlotte he never bothers anyone.
Four days after the shooting, on Labor Day, police from the U.S. Postal Inspection Service continued their efforts trying to find the shooter by going door to door talking with neighbors.
McDaniel was shot in broad daylight while on the job delivering mail last Thursday afternoon on Archer Avenue in West Charlotte.
“He was a good man. He didn’t bother nobody, and he was out working trying to make a living,” McDaniel’s uncle said.
53-year old McDaniel. an Air Force veteran, is currently in the hospital fighting to recover after police say he got into an argument with some people Thursday on his mail route.
The person who shot McDaniel is still on the run with a reward of up to $50,000 being offered by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service to find the shooter. Fox 46 Charlotte
