Neighbor Evelyn Ramirez reported that she heard shots at the time of the incident,

“I kind of peeked out the window, and I saw there was a red car out there with a sign, like a delivery truck, so I called 911,” Ramirez said.

According to WSOC-TV officers discovered an assault-style rifle believed to have been used in the attempted robbery, however, they later discovered that it was just a toy.

Luckily, the pizza delivery driver was not hurt, but the suspects were taken to the hospital to be treated for minor injuries.
