A FedEx driver allegedly returned fire, killing a would-be robber, during a shooting in Lawndale.

On Tuesday night a man who tried to rob a FedEx vehicle was shot and killed by the driver, according to police. In addition to the would-be robber being fatally wounded, the FedEx driver was also hit by gunfire, though he is currently recovering. The incident happened around 7 p.m. in Northeast Philadelphia.

Police Sgt. Eric Gripp says the violent clash went down when the deceased, identified as 27-year-old Jevan Lundy, used a gun to try and rob the 32-year-old driver of his wallet and keys. Used would be the operative word here, as the driver was shot in the abdomen. He then returned fire by putting bullets in Lundy‘s chest and back.

Lundy was later found unresponsive on the 1400 block of Creston Street, where police also found the driver’s FedEx ID card. Lundy was taken to the hospital, where he was declared dead.

Reports indicate another man was with Lundy. Police believe he drove Lundy from the scene in a car with a bullet casing on the floor, reports indicate.

The FedEx driver was able to drive away but was found lumped over his steering wheel in a parking lot on the 6600 block of Oxford Avenue with a gunshot wound to the stomach, according to reports. He had a legally registered 9 mm handgun in his truck and a permit to carry, according to reports.

“Based on the preliminary story that was relayed, it appears to be self-defense,” Acting Police Commissioner Christine Coulter said in reports. “He was shot first, he fired back.”

A FedEx spokesperson would not tell NBC 10 whether or not drivers are permitted to be armed, only saying, “The safety of our team members and service providers is a top priority and we are cooperating fully with the investigating authorities at this time.”
