Ex-Postal Employee Stabs 4 Workers

April 11, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

A former postal worker was shot and killed by police after he walked into a Postal Service facility in Kearny and stabbed four people, none fatally, authorities said.

The man had quit his temporary job there last month after a personnel dispute, and he may have returned to retaliate against other employees, a prosecutor said. The man walked into the bulk mailing facility with a .380-caliber handgun and two knives and attacked the workers, he added.

Three police officers arrived after a 911 call and saw the man in a locker room covered in blood after apparently trying to cut his wrists.
