WASHINGTON — Court documents are giving more insight into why a postal worker allegedly shot a woman at a Northeast D.C. post office.

According to the Metropolitan Police Department, officers were called to a post office in the 900 block of Brentwood Road Northeast just after 9:30 a.m. Monday. When they arrived, they found a woman had been shot.

Court documents show the unidentified woman’s child witnessed the shooting and was able to identify 25-year-old Davida Johnson as the person who shot her mother. The child told officers she went to the post office with her mother who got into a fight with Johnson. While the pair were fighting, the child claimed Johnson laughed before pulling a gun from her waistband and firing three to four shots.

Postal inspectors reportedly obtained surveillance video from near the employee entrance. According to court documents, the video shows the victim walking up to the entrance and dropping a cell phone. As the victim walks toward Johnson, the postal worker appears to point a gun at her before shooting twice.
