Pizza Delivery Driver Shoots Robbers Who Were After His Dough

On Saturday evening, two men waited for a pizza delivery driver outside of a dark house in a northeast Philadelphia neighborhood. When he walked up to the residence, the two grabbed the 52-year-old driver from behind, attempting to steal the $100 he was carrying. However, the driver also had a license to carry a gun. He opened fire on the robbers, striking one of them in the leg as they fled.

Officers tracked both suspects to a nearby home, where they were arrested. The robber who was injured was taken to a nearby hospital and is in stable condition. Investigators noted that there have been a rash of robberies involving pizza delivery drivers in the same Philly neighborhood. They say the suspects arrested in this attempt may be linked to the other assaults.
