Ohio mail carrier shot and killed

A mail carrier in Ohio is dead after being shot while making his daily rounds.

According to news reports, 53-year-old Daniel Kondas was delivering mail in Maple Heights—a suburb of Cleveland—on Thursday morning when someone shot him in the head.

So far the police haven’t said why Mr. Kondas was shot, or who’s responsible. One person was apparently taken into custody, but there’s no official word on any arrests.

A quick search shows Mr. Kondas is hardly the first mail carrier to be killed in the line of duty, but it’s still a sad story. And while I have no reason to think his family reads this blog, I do want to express my condolences to anyone who may have known him.
