Accused killer of postal carrier paranoid from meth use

SHREVEPORT La — A postal worker “was in the wrong place at the wrong time” when he was shot and killed by a meth user who was in a state of paranoia.

That’s according to trusted sources close to the investigation into the death of Antonio Williams on June 22.

They say the man arrested, Michael Gentry, 32, was in a meth-induced state of paranoia when he fired through his front door in the 1100 block of Dudley. They say Gentry did not know who was on the other side.

Our sources say another meth user had threatened to kill Gentry earlier in the day via text message.

When the postal carrier came to make a routine delivery through the door slot, Gentry allegedly fired four times with an assault rifle, killing Williams, 52.
