Pizza delivery driver fights back, shoots 3 of 4 would-be robbers, police say

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Police are investigating after a pizza delivery driver shot three of four people who they said ambushed him and tried to rob him overnight outside an east Charlotte apartment complex.

It happened just before midnight at the Hillrock Estates Apartments on Magnolia Hill Drive.

Police said the victim was delivering pizza to the apartment complex when four suspects approached him and aimed what he thought was a rifle at his head.

The victim, who was armed with his own weapon, fired it at the robbers.

Police said the suspects ran off after the shooting and that the victim was able to call 911. Officers were able to quickly catch three of the suspects near a laundromat on Kilborne Drive.

“I heard some gunshots earlier in the night, and I looked out my window and there (were) cops everywhere,” said Danny Melenfant, who lives in the complex. “They had somebody at gunpoint.”

Georgia officer heading to part-time job stops robbery

(AP) — Authorities say a police officer on his way in his patrol car to a part-time job stopped an armed robbery and fired shots at several suspects.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation says the Baldwin County deputy noticed a clerk was being held at gunpoint at a Quick Pantry store in Milledgeville around 5:40 p.m. Saturday.

Agents say as the deputy pulled into the parking lot, the clerk ran out of the store, followed by the robbery suspects.

Authorities say the deputy fired at the men and held two of the three suspects at gunpoint until additional officers arrived.

Man stops would-be burglar at gunpoint in California home

LODI, Calif. (KTXL) — A would-be burglar was caught by surprise recently after entering a woman’s downtown Northern California apartment.

The woman was not home but her boyfriend was and when he saw a man he didn’t know, he pulled out his gun.

“So, it’s just I think a real important lesson to lock your doors even when you’re home now,” said Colleen Brown, whose Lodi home was broken into.

Surveillance video shows the suspect jumping over Brown’s back fence and crawling up the stairs right by her barking dogs.

“Walked right by them, no fear. Didn’t even stop at the dogs,” Brown said.

Brown said she believes he stayed low so people walking by in the alley wouldn’t see him — but the suspect never expected someone to be inside.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. — C. S. LEWIS

    You’re late! Give an accounting of yourself! (grin) Tox has been roaming the halls trying to stay out of trouble. It’s not working out for him. Stixx had a good linkie over on the Impeachment thread. 3 good guys with guns to help us make it over the “hump.”

    Tanks Matey. “like” your carbine.

      A TAH Admin is never late. He (or she) is always exactly on time. As far as the AR goes, if it had
      “Bushmaster” stamped on the side it would look exactly like the one I had before the flood.

    That AR-15 SP1 carbine is a classical beauty. Sleek, trim, and streamlined, like a ’65 Mustang…

    Is this Dead Dan’s Special Day?

    Have started doing a little tracking on the number of shootings in ChiCongo:

    Last week, there were a total of 14. This week, 16 total.

    If ChiCongo were to take the ASVAB, the 14 would put it in AFQT Category IV-C, and the 16 would move it into Category IV-B.

    As the weather gradually warms up, I’m sure the AFQT scores will also rise, so c’mon ChiCongo, we are all looking forward to you getting a 31 (Cat III-B) which is the lowest acceptable score for entry into the Armed Forces these days./s
