Danielsville man faces federal murder charge in mail carrier shooting

A Danielsville man has been indicted by a federal grand jury in the murder of a mail carrier.

Larry Steven Grogan is accused of shooting Asa Wood, who had been a mail carrier for more than 20 years. Wood was stopped near a mailbox on August 7th, 2021 when police say Grogan shot him in the left leg and drove away. Wood died in his postal vehicle.

People who lived along the road where the shooting happened called 911 and provided information that helped authorities identify Grogan as the shooter. Banks County sheriff’s deputies spotted his car later that day and tried to stop him. Grogan exited the vehicle and began firing at the deputies before he was taken into custody.

In addition to murder, Grogan is charged with assault on a federal employee using a deadly weapon, discharge of a firearm resulting in death and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
