For a postal worker, there’s only one thing worse than an entitled jiggaboo, and that’s an entitled jiggaboo whose home is guarded by a vicious hellhound.
No, not a pit bull.
An Indianapolis man has been charged with murdering a postal worker shot dead on her round, authorities said Wednesday.
Tony Cushingberry, 21, is said to have confronted Angela Summers, 45, on Monday afternoon when she did not deliver his mail because of his aggressive dog.
Cushingberry told authorities ‘the letter carrier was not delivering the mail because she was having a problem with the dog at his residence’, The Indy Star reports.
Summers had posted on her Facebook page two days before she was shot dead about her problems delivering a COVID-19 stimulus check to a house with a chihuahua on her round, according to Fox59.
Cushingberry said he repeatedly asked for his mail while standing six feet from Summers on his neighbor’s porch.
After being approached, Summers, the mother of a 14-year-old girl, sprayed her alleged attacker with mace.
He then pulled out his gun and she was shot dead, records state.
Cushingberry is said to have acknowledged the mace was not deadly, but led to discomfort from his asthma. He said he ‘did not mean to kill the letter carrier, but wanted to scare her’, court documents state.
The 21-year-old has been charged with second-degree murder, assaulting a federal employee and discharging a firearm during a crime.
Indianapolis police homicide detectives along with the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and FBI agents arrested Cushingberry on Tuesday for his alleged involvement in the death of Summers.
Summers was shot about 4 p.m. Monday while she delivered mail on the city’s east side, police said. She died at a hospital.
