A pizza delivery driver arrived at a home in Mesquite when two men allegedly tried to rob him, which led to a brief exchange of gunfire.

The driver for a Domino’s Pizza store, a 39-year-old who has not been identified by police, arrived at the home on Saturday night when the two robbery suspects approached him, the Star-Telegram reported.

After approaching the driver, one of the two suspects, a 16-year-old, pulled out a gun and started firing, police Lt. Brian Parrish said.

“One of the suspects was armed with a handgun, and fired it at the delivery driver,” Parrish said. “The delivery driver was armed and fired back at the suspects.”

The two suspects fled the scene, and one of them was found and died a short time later. Parrish indicated that the second suspect, also 16-years-old and not identified, was taken into custody a short time later and faces a charge of delinquent conduct/aggravated robbery.

Police also said that the delivery driver could face a charge of unlawful carrying of a weapon since he did not have a license to carry a concealed handgun.

“But an investigation continues and nothing has been decided yet,” Parrish said.
