Domino’s delivery man shot outside Lake Highlands apartment

A Domino’s Pizza delivery driver last night was shot in the back during an attempted robbery at the Sienna Palms apartments on Audelia just south of Forest. According to the brief police report, the shooting garnered the criminals one $10 pizza. At least two suspects fled the scene and, as far as we know, are still at large.

I happened to be passing the complex as all this happened. It was about 7:30 p.m. and raining hard. I saw 3-4 police cars enter the property and one sat outside the property, and an ambulance lingered for at least 5-10 minutes. I don’t know if the victim is still alive. He was reportedly taken to Baylor. I’ll report back when I have more info.

As we already knew, but as this painfully illustrates, those attempting to fix the crime problem in our neighborhood’s many apartment complexes face an uphill battle.
