Delivery driver shot in struggle

SUMMERVILLE -- A pizza delivery woman was shot in the leg and bitten on the arm as she fought off robbers who tried to force her into the trunk of her car.

The woman pleaded with the two robbers, telling them she had a baby at home, but one of them said he didn't care and tried to shoot her again. The gun misfired, though, and she escaped with her life.

Summerville police responded to 123 Wilson Drive at 11:30 p.m. Saturday and found the Domino's driver with a gunshot wound to her left thigh. She was treated at Summerville Medical Center and later released, according to an incident report.

Before she was transported, the victim told police she was able to take the handgun away from the suspect and that he bit her on the elbow while fighting over the gun.

She told police that one of the suspects took about $19 from her and grabbed her shirt, attempting to pull her toward the car.

The victim told the suspects, "I have a baby, she's all I have," according to a police report.

One of the suspects said that he didn't care and told her to open the trunk. During the struggle, the gun fired once, striking the victim. She put up a fight and the suspect tried to shoot her again but the gun failed to fire, the report said.

The suspects left in the victim's vehicle.

Police have interviewed a suspect in the case but an arrest has not been made at this time, police Capt. Jon Rogers said.

The first suspect is described as a black male, about 5 feet 9 inches and 160 pounds, with short dreadlocks. He wore black shorts and an oversized, multicolored shirt. The second black male was described as "taller," about 5 feet 11 inches and 170 to 180 pounds. He wore an oversized blue T-shirt and black shorts.
