MOSCOW (AP) — Ukrainian police say an unidentified gunman has killed three postal workers transporting money and escaped with the equivalent of $115,000.

Police said investigators were searching for the gunman who attacked the postal workers Friday in the eastern government-held city of Kharkiv and stole nearly 2.5 million hryvnas.

The police statement did not say why the workers were transporting money, but postal workers regularly deliver pension payments.
