A pizza delivery driver is believed to have defended his life with a firearm after an armed man attempted to rob him on Monday night.
Witness James Wethers told KNXV-TV that he heard three gunshots at around 11 p.m. Monday night. When the looked outside, he saw the "freaked out" pizza delivery and another man face down in a driveway across from his home in Redford, Mich.
"He just said he was robbed. The guy put a gun up to his head and he had to shoot the guy," he said. "He was freaked out…he didn't know what to do."
Police identified the suspected robber as 20-year-old Tajuan Boyd, but released very little information about the incident. Boyd was reportedly pronounced dead at a Michigan hospital later that night.
"After the shooting, witnesses say they saw a possible accomplice speeding away from the scene," according to KNXV-TV.
An active investigation is currently underway, led by detectives from the Detroit suburb's police department.
