gun on pizza feat

Despite how delicious a good pizza can be, everyone knows it isn’t great for their health, but for one would-be robber, it actually proved fatal. Such was the case in Houston last weekend when a pizza delivery driver delivered more than just the pepperoni when he fatally shot one of two men who attempted to rob him, police reported.

The incident occurred around 12:40 a.m. Sunday at an apartment complex, WTHR reported. The driver had arrived to deliver a pizza when he was confronted by two men demanding money “at gunpoint.” HPD stated that the driver, facing an imminent threat, pulled out his own firearm and fired, killing one of the assailants. The second suspect fled the scene.

The driver was unharmed in the confrontation. HPD Sgt. Mark Holbrook commented on the incident, saying, “We’re not sure how the pizza delivery went so wrong that somebody wound up getting shot, but that is what we’re investigating right now.”

Maybe it went so wrong when the guys tried to rob the driver and being a legally armed Texan he said, “screw this.”

HPD has not confirmed whether a gun was found on the deceased suspect’s body. The man who was killed was identified by his brother, Ameer White, as 21-year-old Areyeh White, although HPD has yet to officially confirm this identity.

Ameer White expressed skepticism about the situation, stating, “They say he was the pizza delivery guy, but we don’t have a receipt that he was buying a pizza. If you were the pizza delivery guy, why were you armed?”

While the loss of his brother is understandably upsetting, a better question he might ask is “why was his brother allegedly robbing a guy simply trying to deliver a pizza?”

“Why is a pizza delivery guy armed?” may have been the last thing his brother was asking himself as he floated toward the light, upset that he had underestimated his chosen victim and pondering his own final destination.

In an odd twist of words, WTHR reported in the lede of the story that “a pizza delivery driver fatally shot a man after an argument” but then two paragraphs later said “the driver went to the address to deliver a pizza and was confronted by two men demanding money at gunpoint.”

Where most logical thinking people come from, a robbery is hardly a mere “argument,” like they had a different of opinions. It is a crime, plain and simple. When you try to rob someone and the cops catch you, you don’t get to say, “oh we were just having a little disagreement” when the situation doesn’t play out your way. It also doesn’t work when your victim doesn’t sit back and wait for the cops to come to his rescue.

Oddly, police did say “the man who was killed was a customer.” Guess in this situation, the customer “wasn’t” right.

HPD told WTHR that the case will be referred to a grand jury for further review so hopefully more details will come to light at that time to clear up for sure if this was a righteous defensive shoot or there was more to the story as the grieving brother suggests.

  1. Oddly, police did say “the man who was killed was a customer.”
    Could it be, is it possible (oak island dialogue) that the police meant that the man killed was a frequent police customer?

  2. That’s a shame. The robbers probably just wanted money for their Grandma’s cancer meds but you take your chances when you violently threaten someone.

  3. And how do you get a receipt for a delivery pizza? Order it online and print out a receipt or have an image of it on your smartphone?

    Please…

    • You may have fired the first salvo in a pizza war that would make caliber wars seem mundane.

      Franchise box pizzas = 🤮

      • My nearest Pizza Hut it 26 miles.
        I just find leftovers in the dumpster however that’s becoming more of a rarity. It seems bidenomics has a Nixon style trickle down effect.

  7. Oddly, police did say “the man who was killed was a customer.” Guess in this situation, the customer “wasn’t” right. Are all our police this stupid?

  8. HPD Sgt. Mark Holbrook commented on the incident, saying, “We’re not sure how the pizza delivery went so wrong that somebody wound up getting shot, but that is what we’re investigating right now.”

    Sgt. Holbrook’s a Mensa candidate, like, for sure. No cap and all that other new slang too.

    Because this is the first time in history that someone ordered a pizza and then attempted to rob a pizza guy, right, Sergeant? That’s never, ever happened before, eh? It’s not so fucking common that the pizza places warn their drivers about it, right?

    People say Ideocracy was a documentary ahead of its time. Nonsense, that movie made people appear way, way, way too smart and well informed.

      • I had never seen Idiocracy.

        Got a chance to watch it several weeks ago, and you’re correct. It makes our current population appear dumb and ignorant.

  9. “People” (I’m being charitable here) who order pizzas to rob delivery drivers are NOT “customers” they ARE “criminals” and we all know to which demographic 99.99% of them belong to.

  10. I had two gunms stole in a house break in. Then the robbers would call up Dominoes and rob them.
    I got the gunms back.

  11. I delivered pizza for a while, got mugged with a knife for an anchovy pizza. I couldn’t prove who the perp was, but I knew, and got my revenge later.
    A co-worker was hit in the back of the skull with a club and robbed of two pizzas (no money). Idiots who did it had ordered the pizza using their own landline phone number, so the cops showed up very quickly.

    20 years for 25.00 worth of crappy Dominos pizza.

  12. ‘Why is a pizza delivery guy armed? may have been the last thing his brother was asking himself as he floated toward the light …

    If the deceased was indeed robbing the pizza delivery driver at gunpoint, I would bet serious money that he was drifting toward darkness, not light.

    Queue the naysayers who want affirmation of their horrific lifestyle choices in 3 … 2 … 1 …

    • Nay!

      Not because I need affirmation of anything, I’m just a contrarian to the point that I very much enjoy screaming “Nay!” randomly. Mostly in public.

      Technically speaking however, I’m not a naysayer due to the volume that I tend to project, that makes me more of a naybawler, nayshouter or nayholler-er.

      • Unless I just stepped on a Lego or something. Then I’m more of a naywailer.

        Which is not to be confused with being a Narwhaler.
