Pizza Delivery Driver Drops Armed Thug In Norfolk

You would think that with the number of times this year that pizza shop employees have engaged armed robbers either in the stores, outside the stores, or out on delivery runs, criminals would switch to less ornery targets.


You can now add a Virginia teen to the least of morons who had to learn the hard way.

Police say a Norfolk pizza delivery driver turned the tables on a teen robbery suspect.

Officers were called to the 900 block of Galt Street around 9:30 p.m. Sunday for the report of a shooting.

The investigation revealed a 15-year-old tried to rob a Chanello’s pizza delivery driver at gunpoint. But, the driver also had a gun and shot the teen.

Investigators charged the 15-year-old with robbery and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. He will remain at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital until he recovers from his injuries.

Other accounts suggest that the young robber almost didn’t survive his wounds.

Here’s hoping that he’ll learn from his mistake and attempts to turn his life around once he serves his time.
