Pizza delivery driver clings to life after being shot in face while delivering pizza close to college campus

Two men and a woman are behind bars after police said they shot a Pennsylvania pizza delivery driver in the face on early Monday morning.

ABC6 reports that Richard Labar, 58, a Domino’s Pizza delivery driver, drove to 400 block of Normal Street in Stroudsburg, close to the East Stroudsburg University campus at around 1:48 a.m. when a group of people approached him and demanded his money.

“After the driver denied he had any money several times, the driver was shot in the face and a money bag was removed from his person,” Stroudsburg police said in a news statement. “At present, the Pennsylvania State Police have three individuals in custody for this incident and criminal charges are pending.”

Labar was later rushed to theLehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest, where he remains in critical condition.

“Although he is in critical condition and is on life support at the hospital, we are hoping for his speedy recovery,” Lambda Iota president, Johna Palladino, said, according to The Morning Call.

Authorities arrested the three suspects shortly after the shooting, and reported that none of them attend ESU. Their names have yet to be released.

Meanwhile, the Lamda lota sorority at ESU set up a GoFundMe fundraiser for the victim, to help him cover medical expenses and to assist his family financially while he recovers.

“The Labar family has been contacted, and the proceeds from this fundraiser will go straight to the family once it is over.”
