Mail carrier risks life to help children when gunfire erupts on Cleveland’s east side

CLEVELAND (WJW) – The Fox 8 I-Team obtained Cleveland police body camera video showing a United States Postal Service employee protecting two young children after gunfire erupted on the city’s east side.

The shooting happened on Amor Avenue in the early afternoon hours of  Oct. 30.

“I need an ambulance, this is the mail carrier,” the woman can be heard on the 911 call telling the dispatcher. “A guy just shot at the house and he ran out. I got the two little kids and I rolled up the street and I don’t know what’s going on.”

The mail carrier told police the two children were outside when she heard about three to five gunshots. The mail carrier asked not to be named since the case is still being investigated.
