Delivery drivers are out there trying to make a living. But they are driving vehicles that are worth money which is why there have been numerous carjackings as of late in Philadelphia. Well, this carjacker got more than he bargained for when he tried to steal a pizza delivery driver’s car.
Around 7:30 PM last night, a 39-year-old pizza delivery driver was delivering food in Philadephia, PA. An armed 35-year-old man approached the delivery driver in an attempt to steal his car. What the suspect didn’t know if that the delivery driver was carrying his own gun and was prepared to use it.
The delivery driver drew his concealed carry gun and shot multiple times at the suspect. It is unclear how many times the suspect was hit, but he was taken to the hospital and is in critical condition.
