    I wouldn't consider the person shot to be the "victim".

    Several pizza delivery drivers have been robbed in the Lakeshore Drive area within the last six months, Hart said.
    "This is something the driver probably had in the back of his head when he got here on this scene," he said.
    Gee, ya think?

    Seems the pizza/delivery guy did well in light of what happened, but I think he could have done better recognizing the situation before it happened.

    oh, on the pizza driver forum they had this link instead: Delivery Driver Shooting | LEX18.com | Lexington, Kentucky
    Police later caught up with two of the robbers and arrested them. The delivery driver is not facing any charges. Investigators say there have been several pizza delivery robberies in that area in the last six months.

    Wow, witness goes over to help the shot thief. I'd be making tracks in the other direction.

    Yea I have thought about that also. I know how to deal with gun shot wounds, 2 years as a Marine Grunt in Vietnam, but in all honestly I may just walk on this one.

    Three of the young men were able to run away, but one of them was hit. "He took off his sweatshirt and then took off his shirt. I walked over, and he had a bullet hole in his chest," says Vice. "I got him off the car and then he walked over and laid in the driveway."

    The little predator may have learned his lesson.

    I live in Lexington. There has also been several Pizza delivery robberies in the same area. A guy I work with said, "No more wings for that neighborhood."

    Let's hope so but on the other hand the lesson he learned may have been "to shoot first and then get the money". I would have shed no tear if the little robber had died of his wound.
