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."
