Lakewood mail carrier back to work after being robbed, shot at
The mailman has not been identified and a U.S. Postal Service official said he declined to be interviewed.
Police allege one of the female suspects fled to a nearby Grease Monkey at 10080 West Alameda Ave., where the teen “was confronted by agents and pointed her gun at them.”
Investigators said that’s when agents returned fire. Lakewood Police refer to their officers as “agents.”
The suspect died hours later at the hospital and one Lakewood agent was injured but expected to survive. The second female suspect was apprehended that night in Frederick, Colorado, Lakewood police said.
Neither of the suspects’ identities have been released due to their ages. Jefferson County Court spokesperson Brionna Boatright said that because the case is still under investigation the police have not filed it with the First Judicial District Attorney’s office.
Still, doorbell surveillance video from two homes which captured the drama revealed what appeared to be a calculated operation. One of those cameras faced the corner of Oak and Dakota and showed the suspects, the mail truck on its way up the road and a black Ford SUV making a U-Turn to follow it.
