May 2, 2019

DANVILLE, Ill. (AP) — A string of delivery-driver robberies in Danville has turned deadly with the fatal shooting of a pizza-delivery driver.

The (Champaign) News-Gazette reports that since March 2018 at least ten delivery drivers from five different restaurants have been robbed in Danville, most at gunpoint. On Tuesday night a Domino’s pizza driver was shot and killed after an apparent struggle with two suspects. Police say 41-year-old Terry L. Gaines had just delivered a pizza to a residence before he was killed. They suspect the suspects were trying to rob Gaines.

Gaines’ death is the third Danville homicide in the last week and the sixth so far this year.

Police ask anyone with information to contact Danville authorities or Vermilion County Crime Stoppers.
