Federal authorities in Georgia are investigating the death of a female postal worker who was shot and killed while on duty Monday evening.
The woman, whose identity was withheld, was shot in the head near a post office in Decatur, Georgia — about 20 minutes northeast of Atlanta, ABC affiliate WSB-TV reported. The suspect reportedly fled the scene.
DeKalb County police and U.S. postal inspectors were still at the scene at 10:30 p.m., nearly four hours after the shooting occurred, WSB-TV reported.
Federal authorities, who are now leading the investigation, told WSB-TV that the motive behind the shooting is still unclear. One witness said they heard at least four shots rang out near the back docking area of the post office. ABC News
