Pizza delivery driver shot at during 'prank' delivery call
HOUSTON (FOX 26) - The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after a 22-year-old Pizza Hut delivery driver was shot after leaving a “prank” delivery call at 2 p.m. Tuesday.
The Pizza Hut delivery employee reportedly received a delivery call to an address in the 29500 block of Tanglewood Road. She said that when she arrived she approached the home and rang the doorbell. At that time, the homeowner answered the front door by remote from another location and stated he did not order pizza and for her to get off his property. The Pizza Hut delivery employee left the location and drove onto Highland Blvd where she observed a dark-colored Chevrolet Tahoe driving toward her and then blocked the entire roadway.
The Pizza Hut delivery employee said she observed two individuals exit the Tahoe and walk towards her. The employee then said that one individual had a handgun in his hand. The Pizza Hut delivery employee placed her vehicle in reverse and as she backed up she heard one gunshot. The employee then drove back down Tanglewood where she parked at another home, hid under the house and contacted 911. The Pizza Hut delivery employee had a dashboard-mounted camera in her vehicle which captured the incident.
Deputies recovered a shell casing from the scene. There were at three people in the Tahoe and two of them walked out of the passenger side of the vehicle wearing masks. From the dashboard video, the license plate of the Tahoe appeared to be covered with a piece of clothing.
