A Papa Johns delivery driver turned the tables on a possible robber in Georgia. She averted his plans and shot him instead, though she still might lose in the end.
It may have been against company policy to have a gun handy when making a pizza delivery, but doing so may have saved the driver’s life. Now her family worries that in defending herself, the Papa Johns employee may have forfeited her job.
Just last year however, the CEO of Papa Johns personally attended the funeral of an employee who was shot at the register, and even paid for the proceedings, as previously reported by The Inquisitr. It is unknown whether potentially violating company policy to save their own life will make a difference.
When the Papa Johns delivery driver was approaching a residence to do her job, Captain Stephen Fore with the DeKalb County Police Department said robbery suspect Donquaz Stevenson, 24, approached her.
“She arrived at the location and a male began approaching the vehicle she thought was there to pick up the pizza. When he got to her he produced a handgun and forced her out of the vehicle and on to the ground.”
This was when the driver reached for her own gun and shot Stevenson in the face. Someone found him in a neighbor’s yard suffering from the bullet wound.
A second suspect allegedly jumped into the pizza driver’s silver 2000 Honda Accord and raced off, and is still on the run. Police believe the entire delivery was a setup to rob the driver and make some quick money.

The driver’s mother spoke to the press and told them her daughter is still in shock and hoping she can keep her job despite likely violating company policy by carrying a gun.
Police Captain Stephen Fore is siding with the Papa Johns delivery driver.
“She had no other choice. She must have been in fear for her life and she reacted.”
Possibly due to her age, the driver’s name has not been released to the public.
