Police Chief Inspector Scott Small gave this account:
Around 8:15 p.m., a 33-year-old pizza delivery driver was taking an order to Price Street near McMahon and realized the house he was supposed to make the delivery to was abandoned.
“Then, a male approached him, pointed a gun at him, and demanded his money and his wallet,” Small said.
The driver handed the man his wallet, which contained $100, and began fighting with the suspect.
During the struggle, the delivery driver was able to wrestle the gun out of the suspect’s grasp. The driver shot the man once in his neck and once in his buttocks. Police found two boxes of pizza, a bag of food and the suspect’s blood on the scene.
Sort of weird:
The delivery driver drove back to the restaurant he works for, threw the suspect’s revolver into a recycling bin in front of the restaurant and called police.
Don’t quite get that part. Why dump the gun into an outdoor recycling bin? And didn’t the pizza guy have phone to call the cops from the scene?
