Pizza delivery drivers start carrying weapons

INDIANAPOLIS -- Restaurant delivery workers in Indianapolis are starting to carry firearms on their deliveries.


Two delivery workers were shot and killed on the job in the past two weeks.


Some restaurants are taking extra precautions to protect their employees by allowing drivers with gun permits to carry their weapons while making deliveries.


"You gotta be ultra vigilant. Because somebody could hide in those bushes right there, you come up there, it's a fake order, they jump out and shoot you, whatever you know? So you've always got to be aware," said delivery worker Bill Bruton.


Other restaurants and pizza places are also advising their drivers to lock their car doors, carry no more than $20 in cash, and make sure they have a valid customer call back number to confirm the delivery.
