Heroic feats are not exclusive preserve of law enforcement agents.

Sometimes, ordinary citizens do accomplish quite a lot.

So, this St. Louis Pizza driver would have been a robbery victim, but he turned a hero after shooting and killing a 17-year-old youth who police said was one of two suspects trying to rob him during a delivery.

Police identified the dead man as Lavon Courtney Jr., the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

One suspect struck the driver on the head with a firearm, then ran back to his vehicle while shooting, police told St. Louis’ Fox 2.

The pizza driver returned fire with his own weapon, striking one suspect and prompting the other to flee, the report said.

The delivery driver called police after arriving back at the pizza shop, the St. Louis-Post Dispatch reported. He suffered a cut to his head.

Police said the fatal shooting appears justified.
