Though food delivery is one of the most dangerous occupations in the U.S., Domino’s is one of several national pizza delivery chains that has a corporate policy against employees — including delivery drivers — carrying guns while on duty, even for self-defense.
New Orleans police found the driver, a 36-year-old man with a wife and three children, dead in his car from multiple gun shots in the city’s high-crime Lower 9th Ward shortly after midnight Tuesday, The Times-Picayune reported. New Orleans mayor Mitch Landrieu told WGNO, “all we know is that a driver for Dominos was shot on the way to deliver.”
