Gunfire suspends Harvey mail for 2 weeks

HARVEY, Ill.–Mail delivery has been suspended for two weeks to more than 50 houses in south suburban Harvey because of a mix up after reports that a U.S. postal carrier was caught in gun crossfire.

HARVEY, Ill.–Mail delivery has been suspended for two weeks to more than 50 houses in south suburban Harvey because of a mix up after reports that a U.S. postal carrier was caught in gun crossfire. Postal service spokesman Jose Aguilar said Wednesday that mail delivery was suspended after the carrier said she was caught in the gunfire while working her route on Oct. 10. Aguilar says the delivery suspension was supposed to last one day. But he says miscommunication at the post office’s Harvey branch has drawn that out to nearly two weeks. Aguilar says Harvey police will escort a mail carrier along the route Thursday. Harvey spokeswoman Sandra Alvarado says there is no record of a shooting incident Oct. 10 in the area.  AP ______ Copyright 2008 Associated Press. All rights reserved.
