Going Postal: Naked Man Kills Post Office Supervisor

A United States Postal Service employee fatally shot a supervisor Saturday morning at a post office before leaving to attack and kill another supervisor.

The horrible events started at 4:25 a.m. Saturday at the United States Post Office on the 6400 block of Emerald Parkway in Dublin, Ohio. Franklin County Municipal Court court documents reveal postal employees told Dublin Police they saw 24-year-old Deshaune Steward naked in the sorting bay of the post office.

Stewart was pointing a handgun at 52-year-old postal supervisor Lance Herrera-Dempsey. Witnesses say he shot the supervisor once while he was standing and another time while he was on the ground before fleeing. Two employees say they knew Steward and had seen him at the facility over the last several years.

He was apparently scheduled to work at 7 a.m. Saturday. Stewart is now facing an aggravated murder charge for Herrera-Dempsey's death and another murder charge for the death of a second supervisor who Stewart beat to death at an apartment complex shortly after the initial shooting.

Police Sgt. Dave Sicilian says Stewart was being investigated by the post office, "One was his supervisor, the other was an investigator who was investigating him for some type of misconduct. There had been some type of investigation into his misconduct and it had culminated and to possibly him being terminated and this was apparently his response was very violent."

The United States Postal Service inspection office also released a statement saying,

"We can confirm that shooting incidents occurred at the Dublin, Ohio Post Office along with a related shooting at the Bowland Place apartment complex in the early morning hours of December 23, 2017. Because this tragic matter is the subject of an ongoing investigation by the Postal Inspection Service and local law enforcement, we are not yet in a position to provide details concerning the incidents, although we can say the suspect believed to be responsible for the shootings was apprehended and is in custody. We are referring all additional media inquiries to the Southern District of Ohio U.S. Attorney’s Press Office and they will provide additional information at the appropriate time."
