    Geez.....a mailman was shot while delivering mail? Is nothing sacred anymore? I just don't get this. This world is going to hell in a hand basket.

    A few of Mr Barnette's co-workers were interviewed here at this link. They deliver mail at 7:30 pm in the dark......that seems crazy to me and I have no idea why so late. One worker says the post office won't call them in earlier. Also mentioned many prior robberies of postal workers in this high crime area.

    "The US Postal Inspection Service is offering a reward up to $100,000 for information in connection with the shooting death of a postal worker Saturday night."

    why on earth are they delivering mail at night?! that does not happen where I live (in fact, they rarely work past noon hour)

    it's very possible this is a case of mistaken identity

    the offices are understaffed and when the mail is heavy it is cheaper to have the carriers work long hours than it is to hire more carriers.

    from the initial details available right now i would say this is very likely going to end in a civil suit against the post office and probably rightfully so.

    for now lets just hope they catch the person that took this poor man's life. RIP

    I'm wondering if someone he had not delivered to yet had said they were expecting cash in the mail that day / evening. Maybe the perp wanted to intercept something?

    I know our UPS man comes late at night, sometimes 8pm, so it is not just the post office.
    Just my opinion, of course.

    Most Post Office workers only work a 1/2 day on Saturday. It's possible that this man may have been covering for another person who may have booked off. Seems as if there is a bug going around and a lot of people are sick.

    This isn't far from the DC/Maryland border. This part of Prince Georges County is pretty rough, lots of murders, drugs, robberies, gangs, etc. This victim was involved in a fight with charges just a year ago, as well? RIP.

    We got a new postman when our usual one retired around a year and a half ago. We got our mail at 10:30am with our old one and now it is at 6 or sometimes 6:30pm with our new one. I called the postmaster and he said that the postman gets to decide how to run the route. The new one just reversed the way the old one ran it. None of us like it! With the time change, it is always dark when the mail comes now.

    I hope LE finds out who did this to Tyson Barnette. He was so young. This was such a needless, senseless murder.

    GB his family and friends. I hope they get justice for their loved one.

    We haven't really gotten to know our new postman like we did our old one. We always gave our postman Christmas cookies and a small gift certificate to a local coffee shop. When he brought my medical and other packages in the summer, I would make him take a bottle of cold water with him because you could see how hot he was. We loved him.

    Our new postman will be getting Christmas cookies and a small gift certificate for coffee..............hopefully we will get to know him too.
