Two Workers Killed In Henning, TN Post Office Shooting
Two gunmen opened fire Monday at the post office in Henning, killing two workers during what a survivor and authorities described as an attempted robbery.
District Attorney Mike Dunavant said the case involved "disturbing violence" but did not elaborate.
"We will determine who's responsible for this violence and bring those people to justice," District Attorney General Mike Dunavant said.
The United States Postal Service announced a $25,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the suspects.
Henning is one of those places where people would say it can't happen here. Henning is so small that it doesn't even offer home delivery and the residents pick up their mail at the post office. It is located approximately 50 miles northeast of Memphis and was the boyhood home of Alex Haley.
police are searching for two suspects who left the scene in a maroon Chevrolet Malibu, another assertion that neither of the officials would confirm.
