Authorities in Virginia are searching for a pair of robbers who shot and killed a DoorDash delivery driver who was picking up an order at Denny’s. The two masked men stormed into the restaurant around 2 a.m. local time and ordered everybody to hand over their wallets and cell phones. One of the men was armed with a gun while the other suspect was wielding a baton.
Two people were shot during the robbery. Yusuf Ozgur, a 56-year-old DoorDash delivery driver, was rushed to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. He was shot after unwittingly holding the door open as the suspects made their escape. They also shot a 34-year-old man who was on the ground and complying with their commands. He was taken to the hospital and is in critical condition.
“This is a heinous crime,” Manassas Police Chief Barry Barnard said. “People eating at a Denny’s at two o’clock in the morning, enjoying their time there, enjoying their friends, and people arrived to commit a robbery. And without any provocation, everyone cooperated, there were about 20 people in the restaurant, everyone cooperated, no resistance — they shoot two people. And one is murdered.”
Officials say the two men are also wanted in connection with three other robberies in the area during the past week. The FBI has joined the search and is offering a $10,000 reward for any information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the pair.
