Texas Pizza Delivery Driver With Arizona Carry Permit Shoots Robber

posted on May 11, 2017

A Domino’s Pizza driver making a home delivery in the Dallas suburb of Mesquite was confronted by two men at the door. When one put a pistol to the driver’s head and he didn’t respond, the robber fired a warning shot. Police Lt. Brian Parrish tells The Dallas Morning News, “When this happened, it became clear … that this was a robbery.” Considering this incredible understatement, it was fortunate the driver was prepared.

The deliveryman pulled his own gun and returned three shots, hitting the suspect who had fired first and sending both robbers out the back of the vacant house. Later, investigators found Wayne Osborne dead from a gunshot wound, and arrested his accomplice for aggravated robbery. The driver produced a concealed-carry permit from Arizona—which is valid in Texas—triggering Parrish to add, “He's not going to catch any charges regarding unlawful carrying of a weapon.” A friend of the driver, Joyce Coologhan, described him as “a real nice guy” who delivered pizzas to supplement his Air Force disability benefits.
