Chicago-area man gets 16 years in postal worker’s shooting

CHICAGO (AP) — A suburban Chicago man who pleaded guilty in the New Year’s Eve 2018 shooting of a U.S. Postal Service worker has been sentenced to 16 years in federal prison. A federal judge in Chicago sentenced 25-year-old Cameron Ruebusch last week for the Elk Grove Village shooting that wounded a 36-year-old postal worker, leaving him hospitalized for nine days. Federal prosecutors announced Ruebusch’s sentencing on Wednesday. The Elk Grove Village man had pleaded guilty last year to one count of attempted second-degree murder of a federal employee and one count of knowingly discharging a firearm during a crime of violence.
