Pellet gun stops mail service

SCHENECTADY (AP) -- Mail service to a Schenectady neighborhood has been suspended after a mail carrier was shot by a pellet gun.

Police said that the pellet hit the carrier's mailbag and did no harm. But the incident prompted the Postal Service to suspend delivery to about 40 multiple-dwelling units while police investigate.

Police spokesman Sgt. Matthew Dearing said Monday that the incident happened on Van Vranken Avenue last Thursday. Residents and businesses whose mail service has been suspended can pick up their mail at the city post office.

Cornell U shuts down fraternity

ITHACA (AP) -- Cornell University is booting members of Delta Kappa Epsilon out of their stone castle-like frat house after revoking the chapter's recognition due to excessive drinking.

Apgar said the closing is related to an August incident where two underage females were taken by ambulances to a hospital because of the excessive amounts of alcohol they had consumed.
