Police are still looking for the man who shot and killed a United States Postal Service worker just before her shift ended Monday night, Channel 2 Action News reported.
The shooting occurred outside the post office at the intersection of Wesley Chapel and Snapfinger roads in DeKalb County, according to the news station.
Authorities have not identified the woman, who had just started working at the location about a month ago.
Witnesses told Channel 2 they heard four rounds coming from the loading dock of the post office around the time the woman was shot in the head.
A witness also said he saw the shooter sitting at a Coin Laundry just before the shooting.
Police hope cameras from that laundromat can help them identify the shooter.
