Wichita police are investigating a report of shots fired, involving a pizza delivery driver.
It happened at an apartment in the 6600 block of E. Harry just before 10 p.m. Wednesday.
Police said a Dominoes delivery driver arrived at the location to deliver a pizza, but no one answered the door. The driver returned to his car to get a gun, because he said he was concerned for his safety.
The driver reported to police a man approached him from behind and tried to rob him, as the driver opened the trunk of his car.
The delivery driver said he turned around with a gun in his hand, and pointed it at the suspect. The driver fired two shots, as the suspect ran away.
No one was hurt. The driver was interviewed at the scene and released.
The suspect is described as a black man in his 20s, wearing a large blue coat. Anyone with information is asked to call police.
Domino’s. The guy’s fired before he even gets back to the store.
Shooting a unarmed? robber in the back as he’s running away is probably not the smartest move.
Good for him ..in our area the poor guys trying to scratch a living delivering pizza are always at risk
This happened before a few years ago in Wichita also. The delivery guy got fired, but some other pizza place gave him a job and said he could carry. I don’t understand why delivery men aren’t allowed to defend themselves. I know the robber might sue if he gets shot, but can’t the delivery guy sue if he wasn’t allowed to defend himself?
Dominos doesn't allow their drivers to defend themselves.
Better to be alive to seek out another job. Delivering pizzas is dangerous, he is lucky to be alive. Not much upside at Dominos.
