BALTIMORE (WJZ) – Baltimore police say a U.S. Postal Service vehicle and two other vehicles were hit by bullets during a skirmish Wednesday morning in Highlandtown.

Police said two unidentified people shot at each other shortly before noon at the 3600 block of Claremont Street. Bullets from the gunfight were found to have struck two civilian cars along with the postal van, but officials did not confirm how many bullets hit each vehicle.

Police said no victims were found at the scene and no one was arrested in the incident.

Footage provided to WJZ by a resident shows two men running into the frame and firing multiple times down the street at an unidentified subject, different from the police account of the incident. Then they run back out of the frame from the same direction.

Residents on the street said they, along with their mailman, were injured in the shooting.

One resident said: “My car was parked on the street and my rear window and rear window were shot out.

Sani Rulis di Barr, a resident of Claremont Street, said: ‘You can see bullet casings everywhere and then my neighbor’s car was shot.

“Our mail lady was on the street, I walked down there to make sure she was okay and she was terrified. She was with her supervisor, I looked up and saw the bullet hole in the truck so she was super scared,” di Barr said. “I want her to feel safe back on our street, she’s really nice, I just want her back and I hope she’s okay.

A postal worker on the street on Wednesday afternoon told WJZ’s Annie Rose Ramos that they were delivering mail to their colleague, who had returned home from the incident.
