Delivery Driver Returns Fire, Drives Off Robbers

When an Atlanta, Ga., delivery driver loaded an order of Chinese food into his vehicle and approached his destination at about 10:20 Tuesday night, he didn’t expect anything out of the ordinary. But it turned out the house he had been sent to was vacant—and the order he was carrying wasn’t a meal, but a setup.

According to the Atlanta Police Department, as the driver spoke with a woman who came to meet him in the driveway, he was ambushed from behind by two men—one of whom pulled out a gun and shot him in the back. In response, the driver pulled out his own gun and shot back, striking one of the men in the leg.

The other man and the woman fled on foot. The wounded suspect stumbled away, but was soon arrested by police. He and the driver were treated for non-life-threatening injuries. Police are still searching for the other man, the woman, and another woman suspected to have been involved in the incident.
