MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) ' The mother of a postal employee accused of firing gunshots inside the main post office in Alabama's capital city says her son belongs in a psychiatric facility and not in the county jail.

In an interview with The Montgomery Advertiser (, Willa Darby said her 29-year-old son Arthur Lee Darby Jr. spent a year serving in Iraq.

She told the newspaper he has received regular treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder. She said he was diagnosed with the condition shortly after returning from a tour of duty in Iraq in 2005.

He was charged with two counts of attempted murder after police said he used two guns to fire shots inside a mail sorting area at the facility in Montgomery on Dec. 1. No one was injured.
