It’s a terrible moment in our local history.
This Sunday, Nov. 14, marks 30 years since the shooting at the Royal Oak Post Office. Four people were killed and several other postal workers were injured at the hands of Thomas McIlvane that day. He ultimately killed himself.
Local 4′s Rod Meloni for weeks and weeks has been going through old tape in the WDIV archives. He’s been talking to survivors and family of those killed, trying to put in perspective what happened that Thursday in 1991.
Beginning Thursday, Rod is taking us through that day and the events in McIlvane’s life that led to him shooting, injuring and killing so many people.
In the video above, we have some of his interviews with survivors and those who knew McIlvane.
