Officials in Texas are on the hunt for the suspects involved in an attempted aggravated robbery who shot at a Pizza Hut staff member after she left a “prank” delivery call.

According to a press release, officers with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to the scene at approximately 2 p.m. on Tuesday. Authorities were met by a 22-year-old woman who said that Pizza Hut had received a delivery order for a location in Magnolia.

However, after she arrived and rang the doorbell, “the owner answered the front door remotely from another location” and demanded that she get off his property, claiming he never placed an order.

After the woman left, she told police that she saw a Chevrolet Tahoe down the road, which began to drive approach her and then came to a stop, completely blocking her way.

The incident was caught on dashcam footage from the employee’s delivery car.

Two individuals, both wearing masks, got out of the passenger side of the vehicle. As they approached the woman’s car, she noticed that one of them was carrying a handgun and she put the car in reverse to leave.

“As she backed up she heard one gunshot,” the sheriff’s office indicated.

The delivery driver bolted back down the road where the “prank” delivery was, parked her car, and hid beneath another house before she called the police.

The sheriff’s office indicated that a shell casing was recovered at the scene and at least three individuals were inside the vehicle at the time of the incident. Based on the footage, it appeared that the car’s plate number was covered with some clothing.
