Pittsburgh Man Shoots Mail Carrier

Martinel Humphries, a Pittsburgh man currently held in jail pending trial, has been indicted by a federal grand jury in connection with the incident that occurred in Pittsburgh’s Perry North neighborhood earlier this year, CBS News reported.

According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Pittsburgh man Humphries stands accused of firing shots at a mail carrier after a confrontation took place along Waldorf Street. The use of an AK-47 in the attack has heightened the seriousness of the offense.

In addition to the mail carrier incident, Pittsburgh man Humphries has also been implicated in a separate shooting on McKnight Road that same day.

During this incident, two individuals sustained injuries. It remains unclear at this time what specific charges Humphries will face in relation to the second shooting.

However, these additional allegations further underscore the need for a thorough investigation and legal proceedings.
