A pizza deliveryman in Buffalo, N.Y., gave a group of would-be robbers an unforgettable lesson on the Second Amendment and concealed carry on Monday.
As the man delivered food to a home in the area, a thug wearing a mask and a brown hoodie pulled over his face hit him in the head with a hammer, police said. That move would turn out to be a huge mistake.
The unidentified pizza deliveryman, a concealed carry permit holder, then pulled out his handgun and shot the suspect twice. The rest of the would-be robbers ran for their lives.
DeJuan Coleman, 18, of Deerfield Avenue, was under police guard at ECMC in fair condition Tuesday, recuperating from gunshot wounds to the upper right arm and abdomen. He has been charged with first-degree robbery.
The pizza deliveryman, whose name is being withheld by Buffalo police for safety reasons, was treated for head cuts and bruises as well as a left hand injury suffered in the robbery attempt. Police said his gun was properly registered.
Police also did not reveal the name of the pizza shop the deliveryman works for.
As previously reported by TheBlaze, this is not the first time an armed pizza deliveryman has taken a stand against a criminal.
In August, a would-be robber reportedly threatened to kill a Dominos employee if he didn’t give him money. In response, the employee retrieved a firearm he carries in his vehicle and fired one deadly shot.
The Buffalo News also describes a similar incident from October.
