A pizza delivery driver shot three of the four suspects who allegedly tried to rob him at gunpoint late Monday night.

Charlotte, NC – A pizza delivery driver shot three of the four suspects who allegedly tried to rob him at gunpoint late Monday night.

The 49-year-old driver was out delivering a pizza at an apartment in the 3300-block of Magnolia Hill when he was ambushed by four suspects at 11:50 p.m., WTTG reported.

When one of the robbers pointed a rifle at the driver’s head, the would-be victim pulled out his own gun and opened fire, according to WCNC.

Three of the four suspects were shot during the scuffle, and they immediately ran away.

Investigators later determined that the rifle they pointed at the delivery driver was a toy that had been painted to look like a real firearm, WTTG reported.

The victim dialed 911 to report the attack immediately after the shooting.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police located two suspects near the scene, and apprehended one other suspect a short distance away.

The fourth suspect was located at a hospital less than two hours later, after someone dropped him off there with a non-life threatening gunshot wound, WTTG reported.

Two of the other suspects were also transported to the hospital for treatment of non-life threatening gunshot wounds.

The robber who wasn’t shot is a 16-year-old male, WTTG reported.

A 15-year-old male was treated and released from the hospital before he was transported to a juvenile detention center.

Nemiah Zante McInnis, 20, was treated and released from the hospital before he was turned over to the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office.

McInnis has a significant criminal history, including resisting police, larceny from a motor vehicle, possession of a stolen vehicle, and motor vehicle theft, WTTG reported.

Toybyus James Banks, 18, remained hospitalized on Tuesday.

All four suspects face charges of conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon and robbery with a dangerous weapon.

The pizza delivery driver was not injured during the ambush, WTTG reported.

McInnis also got felony cocaine possession as part of this round. Here are nine mugshots of him in just four years...

The others are too young.

They were hungry, jobless, probably high and wanted some free pizza. Thought they could easily just order and roll the pizza delivery guy. Nice outcome if you ask me.

The only thing the delivery driver did wrong is he didn't aim properly. They're still alive.

When will the family sue the delivery guy? If that was NYC, those four would be free without bond awaiting a trial two years from now.

Damn, tough crowd. Pizza guy shoots 3 out of 4 bad guys and some of you are criticizing his shooting. Let's be honest, that's better than even some police officers may do in a highly stressful situation. Pizza guy is a badass in my book.

Sad part is, all 4 will still only get a slap on the wrist, released so they can continue their reign of terror on innocent victims!! The justice system is completely ass backwards now!!

If the officer had shot him, the story line would be: "Police shoot unarmed black man."
