2 postal workers killed in West Tennessee


The FBI is one of several local, state and federal agencies looking into the fatal shooting of two women postal workers on Monday morning at a post office in Henning, Tenn., according to a CNN report.

A dispatcher from the Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Department told CNN that the shooting occurred at about 9 a.m. on Monday.

The names and ages of the victims have not been released.

The Commercial Appeal, a community newspaper in Memphis, is reporting that the women were working at the front counter of the post office when a robbery attempt occurred. But the attorney general of the state’s 25th judicial district declined to confirm if a robbery had taken place, according to the newspaper. 

The Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Department, FBI, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, the Henning Police Department and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service are involved in the investigation, according to CNN.

Anyone with information about the crime can contact the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation at 1-800-824-3463 (1-800-TBI-FIND) or postal inspectors at 1-877-696-5322.
