Police: Pizza Deliveryman Fatally Shoots Robber

WEST MELBOURNE, Fla. (AP) — Police are investigating the case of a pizza deliveryman who allegedly shot a knife-wielding robber.

WESH-TV in Orlando reports that Bryon Park had just returned to his vehicle Friday after making a delivery to a Central Florida motel when Fredrick Kelly Jr. approached him with a large knife. Police say Kelly threatened to kill Park if he didn’t hand over money.

The pizza deliveryman then reached inside his vehicle for a gun and shot and killed Kelly, police say.

Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey says Park appears to have acted in self-defense. An investigation is underway.

Authorities say Kelly had a criminal record. He was previously convicted of armed robbery and false imprisonment.
