A United States Postal Service worker was being stalked by her estranged boyfriend days before she was fatally shot in the head at her job, witnesses told Channel 2 Action News.
Tyrika Terrell, 22, had been with USPS no more than a month before she was killed outside her job Monday night, U.S. Postal Service Atlanta Field Office spokesman Clifton Bell told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Terrell gave birth less than a year ago to a child witnesses said she shared with the man, Channel 2 reported.
Authorities have not named the boyfriend as a suspect in the investigation.
The shooting occurred in the parking lot of the Wesley Chapel Post Office in Decatur, Bell said. Terrell, who worked as a city carrier assistant, was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
“USPS is of course devastated by what happened,” Bell said. “The postal service offers its condolences, thoughts and prayers to her family.”
