By WCBI.com

A rural mail carrier is shot while delivering mail and three people of interests are in custody.

But Lowndes County authorities can’t release details because the investigation has been turned over to federal postal inspectors, who still were looking into the assault at this hour the TV station reported.

The three unnamed suspects were picked up just before 3 this afternoon in connection with the shooting of the mail man at the Providence Place housing development just before noon.

The postal worker was shot in the upper left arm and chest and rushed to Baptist Golden Triangle Hospital but his injuries are not thought to be life threatening.
