Teen Armed With BB Gun Shot While Allegedly Trying To Rob Pizza Guy

Posted on March 7, 2013


Indiana (The Gaslamp Post) – A teenager is listed in grave condition after police say he pulled a gun on a pizza delivery guy in an attempt to rob him.  Unfortunately for the 15-year-old would-be robber, the pizza guy was not only armed, but the kid’s weapon was only a bb gun.

In late February, a man who was delivering a pizza told police that he was approached by two males who at first asked him about the pizzas he was carrying, but then one of them produced a gun.  While the other male walked away with the pizzas, the other demanded the delivery man’s wallet and cell phone.

That looks good, think I’ll phone one in…

According to Indystar, the delivery man handed over his wallet but told the armed suspect that his cell phone was in his car.  Instead of exiting his vehicle with his cell phone, the delivery man exited with his .40 caliber handgun, and served his assailant something hot and fresh of his own.

The 24-year-old delivery man told police that he hit the suspect twice.

The suspect was taken to an Indianapolis area hospital where he was being treated.
