PHILADELPHIA — Philadelphia police have been searching for a fake pizza delivery driver who reportedly shot a man in the back at his home.
Police say the shooting occurred about 1:15 p.m. Tuesday in Mount Airy, which is located in northwest Philadelphia.
Police say the shooter knocked on a door and asked if anyone had ordered a pizza. When the victim said, “No” and tried to close the door, the fake delivery man tried to force his way into the home. When a dog started running toward the shooter from inside the home, the fake deliveryman ran away but fired two shots, one of which hit the 49-year-old victim in the lower back.
Police say they found a pizza box with a half-eaten pie at the scene.
The victim was stable at Einstein Medical Center.
