    Delivery Man Shoots Would Be Robber

    Police say a Lexington delivery driver took matters into his own hands Thursday night when two juveniles tried to rob him. Investigators say that the two juveniles approached the driver around 9:15 p.m outside of an apartment complex along Lake Tower Drive and tried to rob him. But the delivery man had a gun. Police say he fired one shot, hitting one of the would be robbers in the abdomen.

    The juvenile was taken to UK Hospital, where he is recovering. Police say both youngsters face robbery charges.

    Police continue to investigate the incident.
    I'm waiting for the howls from the antis, indicating the punks just wanted to eat the pizza.

    +1 for the delivery man

    It's interesting Lex 18 didn't report what type of delivery service this was. With the rash of thugs robbing pizza delivery men, maybe they're trying to protect industry reputation.

    Based on the bare details, the delivery fellow done good.

    Pizza delivery (if that's what was infolved) guys have a rough job. I gotta give those guys their props. I wouldn't advise doing it without a good self-defense strategy...

    I think you're reading too much into it. It's just poor reporting. Lots of local reporters leave out some of the Who/What/Where/When/Why...

    You can pick up the want ads in any city in America and find someone looking for pizza delivery drivers. Most of them will hire former competitors, and not look too closely at whether they were fired for shooting a robber contrary to company policy.

    "I was looking for a job when I found this one" comes to mind.

    Thugs will think twice about now about trying to rob people. If I ever encounter thugs they will be shot on the spot.:celebrate

    All pizza delivery men should carry a freshly made GOPHER POISON pizza. When some thugs come up to rob him and demand a free pizza, he should say, "Here ya' go! ENJOY!"
