As many of you are aware through local news reportings, there has been an arrest made in the shooting death of the U.S. Postal worker, Tony Mosby. For information relating to that arrest, please contact the U.S. Postal Inspection Service. Many have questioned if the shooting of Mr. Mosby is related to the shooting incident that occurred on February 8, 2018, where an unknown suspect fired upon Dallas officers as they travelled near the same stretch of highway. Investigators have determined that there is no connection between the two shooting incidents.
Update February 19, 2018 at 9:10 P.M.
The U.S. Postal Inspection Service is offering a reward of up to $50,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect(s) who shot and killed US Postal Service employee Tony Mosby. The murder occurred at 110 DFW Turnpike Freeway between 2:00-2:10 am on February 19, 2018. The employee was driving a U.S. Postal Service-marked 11-ton delivery truck commonly known as a box truck. No description of the suspect(s) is available.

On February 19, 2018, at about 2:20 A.M., Dallas police officers were dispatched to 110 Dallas Fort Worth Turnpike Freeway regarding a shooting. Upon arrival, officers observed that the driver inside of a United States Postal Service box truck had been shot. It was confirmed that the victim was a United States Postal employee. Homicide detectives and United States Postal Inspectors responded to the scene.
The Dallas Police Department and The United States Postal Inspection Service are asking anyone with information regarding this incident to contact Dallas Police Homicide Detective Walton at 214-671-3632 or 214-701-8453.
On February 8th at about 2:10 a.m., a Marked Dallas Police Squad car was fired upon approximately one mile from this last offense location. At this this point in the investigation there is no evidence linking these two crimes. Again I urge anyone that may have observed anything or happens to receive information about either of these cases to please contact Detective Walton.
The Dallas Police Department will provide updates if there is any new information obtained.
