A neighborhood was sprayed with over two dozen bullets, one of which sending glassflying, injuring a mail carrier.

A postal worker was nearly caught in the crossfire Saturday afternoon when a shooter began firing while he was delivering mail in Philadelphia.

A bullet richocheted, causing glass to shatter and hit the mailman while he was on the 1600 block of North 6th Street in North Philadelphia around 4:30 p.m.

The mailman was not the unknown gunman's intended target, according to police.

Investigating officers found multiple shell casings on the ground and bulletholes in several vehicles along the block.

No injuries were reported.
