Columbus pizza delivery driver with concealed handgun license defends against robbers

WCMH (NBC Columbus) is reporting that a pizza delivery driver shot at two people who attempted to rob him on Monday evening.

From the article:

According to police, the Padova's Pizza Delivery driver was delivering a pizza when two men armed with shotguns approached him, in the 3000 block of Hatfield Dr., at about 11:45 p.m. Monday.

The driver, who was licensed to carry a gun, told the men to stay away from him. When the men continued to approach the driver, he shot at them. One of the alleged would-be robbers was found a short distance away, on Rutledge Drive, with wounds to his face, chest and thigh.

Police said that this would have been the second pizza delivery driver robbed in the area in a week and were working to learn if there was a connection.

The man who was struck by bullets was transported to Grant Medical Center. The other suspected robber was not found after the shooting.
