Just Another “Good Guy With A Gun”

posted on June 26, 2015

A Hollywood, Fla., pizza delivery driver may well have saved several lives this week with his weapon and quick thinking. It’s certain he thwarted an armed robbery.

Adalberto Hernandez, 24, was shot and killed during a robbery attempt at the Domino’s franchise, while a masked, unnamed accomplice escaped. Miguel Nieves—who told local news that his girlfriend’s daughter works at the location—said he was glad the driver was armed: “I’m glad he was able to protect them. If not, it could have been worse.”

It remains to be seen if the driver will be fired for his actions. Domino’s has a strict no-weapons policy despite a worrisome track record for driver safety: Three drivers have been violently killed since 2012, several more have been very seriously injured, and in one particularly hideous incident in February, a 22-year old female driver in Antioch, Calif., was raped and beaten.
