A hospital in Cleveland says a letter carrier who was shot while delivering mail on his suburban route has died.

Spokeswoman Susan Christopher at MetroHealth Medical Center says 53-year-old Daniel Kondas died Friday. Police in Maple Heights said he was shot in the head while on the job Thursday morning.

Police said a search led officers to a nearby home where a man was taken into custody. So far, no charges have been filed.

Authorities have not said anything about a possible motive for the shooting.
