RICHMOND, Va. --

A pizza delivery driver shot and wounded a stun-gun wielding man who had tried to rob him early today, Richmond police said.

Police responded about 2:16 a.m. to a shooting in the 00 block of East Broad Street, officials said in a news release.

After officers arrived, they learned that the victim had been shot after he tried to rob the pizza delivery driver, who fired in self-defense. The driver, 33, was not injured.

Michael T. Caballero, 19, who police said had no fixed address, was charged with robbery and two counts of possession of drugs with intent to distribute.

Pizza Delivery is a dangerous business. It is more dangerous than riding shotgun on an old west stage coach.

The person shot was not the "victim," but rather the "criminal."

The important question is: Did 19 year old robber, Caballero, who has no fixed address, look like President Obama’s son.

Funny how most all of the LSM always has a difficult time in making that important distinction, isn’t it?

What a great way to start off the day. A little justice served in my home town. That’s the beauty of VA... You never know who may have a CHP.

“who has no fixed address,”

Persons formerly known as “bums”, “drifters” or “vagrants”;)

Always write the "news" to fit the predefined narrative ie. any shooting by anyone other than the police is always a crime, and police shootings are never crimes.

Two cracked ribs, a broken wrist and 30 staples in my head say, 'I agree'.

That horrible pizzaman shot that poor homeless guy who was only trying to survive in this cruel world, and deprived his needy customers of the drugs he was about to distribute! < /liberal whine >
