Milwaukee letter carrier Aundre Cross shot and killed on his route

NALC is deeply saddened by the death of Aundre Cross, a member of Milwaukee Branch 2, who was shot and killed on his route on Dec. 9. Police are investigating the murder, and no arrests have been made.

Cross had been a letter carrier for 18 years and was assigned to the Hampton Station in Milwaukee. He is survived by his wife and four children. He was 41.

“Brother Cross was dutifully performing his job when this senseless act of violence took his life,” NALC President Fredric Rolando said. “On behalf of NALC, we are heartbroken by this tragedy and send our deepest sympathies to his family and colleagues. Aundre was a dedicated letter carrier who was beloved by his community and coworkers. He will be greatly missed.

“The growing number of crimes against letter carriers, such as this, are deeply concerning, unacceptable, and must be stopped. No letter carrier should be fearful while on the job. The safety of our members is our top priority, and we are committed to working with the Postal Service, law enforcement and legislators on solutions that will protect our members.”
