2 wounded in shootout after teens rob food delivery driver in Petersburg

Laura Perrot
PETERSBURG, Va. (WRIC) — Two people were wounded in a shootout in Petersburg Wednesday night after two teens robbed a food delivery driver.

A Petersburg Police spokesperson told 8News a teen boy and girl, both 16-years-old, robbed the delivery driver on Saint Mark Street.

An employee of Mun Cheese Pizza & Grill on Washington Street told 8News the owner of the restaurant was the delivery driver who was robbed and shot.

The 16-year-old boy and delivery driver were both injured in the shootout, though it’s unclear exactly how the incident unfolded. One was found on the 600 block of St. Mark Street and the other was found on the 600 block of Virginia Avenue. It’s unclear who was found at which location.

A woman who lives in the area where the shootout occurred said she heard ‘a whole bunch of shots.’

“I’m kind of used to the gunshots,” she said. “It’s always somebody doing something around here.”

That woman said her mother got shot a year ago while standing on her front porch, and the gunfire that rang out Wednesday night was a harsh reminder.

“My momma was hollering and crying,” she recalled.

“It’s just bad around here,” she added. “Who’s gonna shoot tonight?”

One DRT and three inconvenienced today, Delta Whiskies and Whiskettes. The young man in the last article is doing a great job of protecting himself after the shoot, exactly as discussed yesterday.

Sometimes a person has to exercise personal judgement and take the chance of being mistaken, or stop calling himself or herself free. —POUL ANDERSON

    Maybe the 3 inconvenienced shoulda had a larger dose of medicinal lead. Next time consult with Dr. Browning.
