A reward is being offered for information in the weekend murder of a postal worker killed while delivering mail in Prince George's County.
Tyson Jerome Barnette, 26, of Upper Marlboro was found shot multiple times near the intersection of Reed Street and Jutewood Avenue, just south of the Cheverly Metro station late Saturday. He died at the scene.
Today, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service is offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of whoever killed Barnette. Investigators say that Barnette was on duty delivering mail at the time of the shooting.
In a a statement released late yesterday the National Association of Letter Carriers wrote, "The incident shows the need for safety considerations in how and when mail is delivered."
