Colquitt County-- A Post Office worker is shot at while delivering mail. Police believe the shooter is 44-year-old Jay W. Jarrell.

Jarrell is accused of pulling up next to Shannon Willis' car on Millpond Road about 3:00 Tuesday. He pointed a shotgun at her. She ducked, and he took off.

Willis said she heard a gunshot and when she looked in her rearview mirror, she saw him make a U-turn. He chased the postwoman, reaching speeds of 100 miles per hour until she lost him.

Jarrell is in the Colquitt County jail. Investigators don't yet know the motive.
