WEST MELBOURNE -- Investigators say a Brevard County pizza delivery man takes action into his own hands -- shooting and killing a would-be robber.

Investigators said a Domino's employee had just delivered a pizza to one of the rooms at the Days Inn off US-192 near Interstate 95.

Agents said after delivering the pizza just before midnight, the driver went back to his car, sat down and starting counting his money and tip, waiting for his next call for a delivery.

That’s when investigators said a man approached him with a knife, demanding money and threatening to kill him.

“At that point the delivery man, who had a weapon in his vehicle, pulled his firearm, shooting the robber one time and at this point the robber is deceased and we’re continuing our investigation,” said Maj. Tod Goodyear from the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office.

Investigators have not released the names of the would-be robber or pizza delivery driver.

The sheriff's office said no charges are being considered right now.

The hotel's general manager said the company has no comment.

They need to find a picture of Fredrick Kelly Jr. when we was 12 or 13. He doesn’t look cute enough in the mug shot.

It’s always gratifying when one of these animals is simply shot dead rather than wounded and arrested, etc.
The savings to taxpayers is enormous.

Thanks for the update. The mob is already gathering in D.C. to memorialize MLK's famous speech 50 years ago this Wednesday. It's got the makings of a "repeal SYG laws" demonstration instead ...

We now know the victim pizza guy who stood his ground is a former police officer but as yet his race has not been announced AFAIK, so it's a good guess he's not black. Therefore, it's a good idea for us to prepare for renewed and possibly more robust outrage from the local "Holden's People".

I used to live in a somewhat purple state and lost my job. The need to feed my family over-rode political sensibilities. I had to move them cross country and give up some things I really liked, such as my CCW in order to not do some other stupid things, like lose my house to foreclosure etc.

Wanna still talk simple?

It took a while to get the lynch Zimmerman mob assembled. Does the victim have a Jewish sounding surname? Has Jesse, Al, Crump , Governor Scott, Pam Bondi, or Angela Corey been notified yet?

I know the pizza guy and he is white. It is not his first attempted robbery. The area he was at is not a dangerous area normally but it is right off I-95 where any transient can pull off set up shop waiting on a victim. This guy under estimated the power of CCW.

I think I know him too. I am surprised it happened on the front side of the hotel and not the back. I am also surprised it happened while the County Line Saloon had its monthly Mud Bogging event going on next door - perhaps the thief thought it a distraction? Lots of redneck boys and usually a deputy sheriff or two.

Welcome to FR, I hope you stick around.

CCW has nothing to do with this incident. ANYONE can carry a loaded firearm in a vehicle in Florida. A CCW permit is not needed.
