A Dublin postal worker shot his supervisor on Saturday, before heading to another supervisor’s apartment and shooting her. DeShaune Stewart is being accused of murdering Lance Herrera-Demsey and Ginger Ballard. Court documents state that another employee saw Stewart enter the post office, fully nude, and wielding a gun before pointing it at Herrera-Demsey. That same employee said that Stewart shot Herrera-Demsey once while standing and another time while on the ground before fleeing the scene.
“Sgt. Dave Silicilian stated, “There had been some type of investigation into his misconduct and it had culminated into possibly him being terminated, and this was apparently the reason his response was very violent.” Stewart then went to the apartment of Ginger Ballard where he shot and killed her. “We received a call here at this apartment complex, where there was a male who was apparently causing alarm to a resident,” said Sgt. Silician.
The local post office suspended service and issued the following statement:
We would like to apologize for any inconvenience and thank the Dublin community for their understanding and support. Our thoughts remain with the victims of this senseless act of violence and their families.”
