|Incident at a Glance|
|# of Suspects:||2||Shots Fired:||Unknown|
A woman delivering pizza in Dekalb County, GA used a firearm to defend herself from a pair of armed robbers last night.
According to local media reports:
Around 8 p.m., a 27-year-old female pizza delivery driver was delivering a pizza to a home in the 1800 block of Camilla Drive in DeKalb County.
When she arrived, the unnamed driver was met in the driveway by a 24-year-old man who acted like he was picking up the delivery.
The man pulled out a gun, forced the driver out of the car, and attempted to rob her.
The victim was armed with a handgun she was able to retrieve from her pocket and shot the suspect.
The suspect who was shot was found nearby. The second suspect remains at large and the victim’s car, which was stolen, is still unaccounted for.
This incident is the one of the most common types of defensive gun uses. That is, one in which no one was killed. Despite this being one of the most common types of defensive gun uses, these incidents are often not included in statistics about defensive gun uses. Many of these statistics and studies focus solely on justifiable homicides, which represent only a fraction of total defensive gun uses.
