The capturing came about Monday night time on a residential avenue in Ashland City, about 20 miles northwest of Nashville.

According to a prison criticism obtained by USA TODAY, Ashland City Police Department officers responded to a house for a report of a teenage Domino’s pizza driver who had been shot at at least seven times.

Police mentioned they recovered seven shell casings from the scene.

The sufferer informed police he was delivering a pizza and thought he parked in the right driveway and after he dropped the order off, “he saw a man running at him and shooting at him” court docket papers continued.

Three bullets struck the sufferer’s truck, police reported, and the capturing was captured on Ring digicam footage police mentioned they reviewed.

“Nothing close to what I thought would happen on a delivery, I’ll say that,” the sufferer, an 18-year-old highschool pupil, informed WTVF-TV. “I was literally about to get killed right there, so it’s attempted murder in my opinion.”
