Video appears to show suspect in courtroom near time of postal carrier shooting

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Video appears to show that a man charged in connection with the shooting of a postal worker was in court at the time of the shooting.

Mail carrier, Da'Ron Lester was shot around 10:30 a.m. on Feb. 10, while delivering mail along Dearborn Avenue.

Court documents say the victim identified Eric Bennett as the shooter, claiming his brother, Marcus Bennett, was in the passenger seat of Eric's car -- but time-stamped video from a Jefferson County courtroom appears to show Marcus Bennett in court around 10:23 a.m. That's just minutes before court documents allege Lester was shot.

His brother, Eric Bennett, is charged with attempted murder and assault, but also appeared to be seated behind his brother beginning at 11:24, in the video.
