A spokeswoman for the U.S. Postal Service says a Montgomery employee had worked for more than four years before being accused of firing shots in the mail sorting area at the capital city's main post office.

Spokeswoman Debbie Fetterly said Monday that 29-year-old Arthur Lee Darby Jr. started in June 2007 and worked as a part-time relief worker.

He worked regularly, but his work was less than 40 hours per work.

He's accused of going to work Thursday evening with two pistols and firing several shots. No one was injured.

Police charged him with two counts of attempted murder.

He remains in the Montgomery County jail with bond set at $1 million.

Postal inspector Tony Robinson said Monday the motive remains under investigation, with employees and family being interviewed.
