In Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania, a pizza delivery guy was stabbed by a robber while delivering a late-night pie.
The pizza guy, smartly, carried a handgun for self-defense and was able to shoot the attacker before he could stab him to death.
From the Post-Gazette:
A pizza deliveryman fatally shot a would-be robber after a struggle overnight in Beaver Falls, police said.
Beaver Falls Police Chief John A. DeLuca said the encounter occurred around 12:20 a.m. Friday in the 1500 block of 2nd Avenue. Police were dispatched to the scene for a report of an attempted robbery of a pizza delivery driver.
When they arrived, the driver told police he had delivered a pizza and was returning to his vehicle when a man approached him and attempted to rob him.
“At that time, a struggle ensued and the driver was stabbed,” Chief DeLuca said.
The driver told police he managed to get to his vehicle, where he retrieved his handgun and fired a single round at the attacker.
The wounded attacker fled and was found by police about a block away on a porch, police said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The pizza delivery driver was taken by ambulance to a Pittsburgh hospital. His condition has not been released.
No identifications are being released by authorities at this time.
Amanda Blackwell, who lives near the robbery scene, said she was watching television at home when she heard a gunshot.
When she went outside, she said she saw the injured pizza deliveryman.
“I asked him if he was OK and he said he didn’t know,” she said.
