MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) – Authorities say two Postal Service workers have been fatally shot at a postal facility in Memphis, the third high-profile shooting in west Tennessee in recent weeks.

A third postal employee was identified as the shooter Tuesday, and officials say that person died from a self-inflicted gunshot.

U.S. Postal Inspector Susan Link told reporters that the three postal workers were found dead after the shooting at a carrier annex in an historic Memphis neighborhood.

FBI spokeswoman Lisa-Anne Culp said the suspect shot him or herself.

No identities or motive were released.

The shooting occurred at a post office facility in the historic Orange Mound neighborhood, southeast of downtown Memphis.
