2 workers killed in Tenn. post office shooting

HENNING, Tenn. — Authorities say two post office workers have been killed in a shooting at a post office in West Tennessee.

The Lauderdale County Sheriff's Department said two female employees were killed but couldn't provide information about suspects or a motive. Tennessee Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Kristin Helm said her agency was sending investigators to the scene in Henning, about 45 miles northeast of Memphis. TBI confirmed that two people had been killed but did not provide details about their identities.

Beth Barnett, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Postal Service, said there had been an incident at the post office but she didn't yet have further details.

Henning, about 45 miles northeast of Memphis, was the hometown of "Roots" author Alex Haley.

How can you compare the shooting of those poor postal workers to somebody committing "progressive left hate"****what ever that suppose to be ?

They have nothing to do with each other at all and you should have known that before you made such a rude and mean spirit post as that.
