Two post office workers were killed Monday in a shooting at a post office in West Tennessee during a possible robbery attempt, authorities said.

The Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Department said two female employees were killed around 8:30 a.m local time in what may have been a robbery at the Henning post office.

Officers are searching for a maroon Chevrolet Malibu with two men inside. The state Highway Patrol told NBC News that the suspects were still on the run and presumed armed and dangerous.

One man said his sister-in-law told him the shooting happened during a robbery attempt. The sister-in-law, a postal service employee, was assigned to the Henning office Monday but escaped unharmed.

Standing on a street corner within sight of the post office, city resident Emmitt Hennings, a 71-year-old retiree, said it was hard to comprehend what had happened.

“I just couldn’t believe it, not in this town,” Hennings said. “It’s too quiet.”

Everyone in town stops by the post office to pick up their mail because it isn’t delivered in the city, he said.

Yulanda Burns, an inspector with the U.S. Postal Inspection Service in Atlanta, said it was too early to determine a motive. The FBI and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation are helping investigate.

Henning, about 45 miles northeast of Memphis, is best known as having been the hometown of “Roots” author Alex Haley.
