On Friday night, Feb. 22, a pizza delivery driver was the target of two armed robbers according to a report by WTHR. However, the would-be robbers got an unexpected surprise upon releasing that the driver was also armed.
The driver stated that the two teenage boys approached his vehicle around 7:15 P.M. at 36th Place and Richelieu Drive in Indianapolis’ Eastside. One boy took the pizza, while the other pointed a gun at the driver, but the driver pulled out his own gun and shot the boy. The second boy quickly decided that the pizza, or whatever else they were seeking, wasn’t worth risking his life, dropped the pizza and ran off.
The driver immediately called 911 following the incident and waited at the scene for police to arrive.
The robber that was shot is listed in critical condition at a local hospital.
With NBC’s weeklong series “investigating” “gun violence” in America, which exploits deaths that occurred over a weekend in January in an attempt to gain acceptance for gun control, the Little Rock Gun Rights Examiner has started its own series in an effort to help show that guns not only take lives, they very often save them. The series will highlight 30 days of guns saving lives. This is story number 12.
