Pizza delivery driver shoots suspect during robbery attempt

Pizza delivery driver shoots suspect during robbery attempt

When a woman delivering pizzas in DeKalb County was ordered to the ground by a man with a gun, she fired back. Armed with her own gun, she shot the man Sunday night, according to police.

The employee of a Columbia Drive Papa John’s wasn’t injured, her mother told Channel 2 Action News. But the woman is worried the incident could get her fired because she carried her gun for protection.

A suspect, Donquaz Devon Stevenson, was found nearby with a gunshot wound to his face, police told Channel 2. Stevenson, 24, of a Decatur address, was arrested and charged with armed robbery, DeKalb jail records showed.

A second suspect, who was not identified, left the scene in the delivery driver’s silver 2000 Honda Accord, according to police. He remained on the loose Monday.

Anyone with information on the attempted robbery is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477.
