A female mail carrier was shot in the hip Friday when a stray bullet pierced the window of a USPS truck in East Oakland.
OAKLAND (CBS SF) — A female U.S. Postal Service mail carrier was stable condition at a local hospital after she was shot while she was in a postal vehicle in East Oakland early Friday afternoon, according to a U.S. Postal Inspection Service spokesman.
The shooting occurred near the corner of Bancroft and Avenal Avenues shortly after noon Friday, Postal Inspection Service spokesman Jeff Fitch said.
It appears that the shooting was unrelated to the woman’s job, Fitch said.
However, Fitch declined to disclose additional details about the shooting and said he doesn’t want to speculate on a motive for it
