Domino’s Delivery Driver Stops Armed Robbery

posted on October 29, 2015

A Domino’s driver was delivering pizzas in Jacksonville, Fla., Saturday night when he was approached by two armed men who demanded all his money. The deliveryman, a concealed-carry permit holder, retrieved his own gun and shot one of the suspects. The injured robber was taken to a local hospital, and police say he remains in serious condition. His accomplice is thought to have fled. 

Domino’s spokesman Tim McIntyre told TheBlaze that, while Domino’s prefers employees not carry weapons, Florida law supersedes any company’s policy. “In this case, the employee of the independently owned franchise has a concealed-carry permit and was not charged with anything. We’re simply grateful he was unharmed,” McIntyre said. 

Hopefully the company, which has been much less accepting of employee armed self-defense in the past, is finally coming around. This latest incident comes only six days after an unarmed Domino’s deliveryman in St. Louis was carjacked in a company parking lot.
