Family, friends of slain postal worker to gather for drive-thru funeral Sunday

GREENWOOD, Ind. (WISH) — Family and friends will pay their respects to an Indianapolis postal worker Sunday who was shot and killed while working her route in April.

The funeral for Angela Summers will take place in Greenwood Sunday afternoon from 2-4. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Summers’ family is having a tent drive-thru service at Forest Lawn Funeral Home, 1977 S. State Road 135, Greenwood. Family, friends, coworkers and community members will remain in their vehicles and can stop briefly to pay their respects. The service will not be livestreamed.

Police say Summers was shot April 27, after a dispute with a homeowner in the 400 block of Denny Street.

Federal charges were later filed against Tony Cushingberry-Mays, 21, in the fatal shooting. He is charged with second-degree murder; assaulting, resisting or impeding certain officers or employees; and discharging a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence.

Summers had been a letter carrier in Indianapolis for almost two years. She was 45 years old, the Marion County Coroner’s Office said.
