A USPS worker was fatally shot and killed in Louisiana while he was doing his daily mail run.

 

Antonio Williams, a 52-year-old postal worker, was killed around 11:20 a.m. as he delivered mail to a residence in Shreveport, Louisiana.

KSLA reports that 32-year-old Michael Jerred Gentry was arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder. In addition, he faces charges of battery of a police officer, resisting an officer and theft. Police said they don’t believe any dispute occurred between the two men before the fatal incident.

Williams’ family speak highly of him and add that he loved his job as a postal worker, an occupation that he has had for 17 years. He is survived by his wife, seven children, and 13 grandchildren.

“Thank you so much to the entire Police Department, the postmen and all of those out there praying for my family,” said Williams’ wife, Ivy Shelby-Williams. “I appreciate it so much. Thank you.”

Gentry’s motive has not been made clear yet.
