A United States Postal Service carrier was shot and killed in Milwaukee, Wisc., on Friday evening, authorities said.

The shooting reportedly happened on North 65th St., located northwest of the city center. 

No motive has yet been established. Police are still looking for the killer as of Saturday morning. 

Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson told media in a statement that the shooting was “alarming” and that his “thoughts are with the victim's family and colleagues."

"The postal worker in this homicide was a public servant, which makes this crime even more disturbing,” he said. “Criminals responsible for death and harm in our city must be held accountable."
