Pizza deliveryman shoots Florida man tries to rob

FORT PIERCE, Florida. – Authorities say a pizza deliveryman shot a man trying to rob him at gunpoint during a delivery in Florida.

TCPalm.com reports that Fort Pierce police spokesman Ed Cunningham says the 25-year-old John Parker shot 25-year-old Martin Reaves three times on Sunday night.

Police say Parker could not find an address and began to drive back to Goodfellas Pizza under the assumption of a false order was placed. Reaves flagged him down and asked him to hand over everything he had. Parker then retrieved his gun from his car.

Cunninham says Parker does not need a concealed weapons permit, because the gun was not on his person. Police say Reaves had a airsoft gun.

Reaves was treated at a hospital and later charged with armed robbery.

Cunningham says no charged have been filed against Parker.
