The Dover Police Department is investigating a robbery that resulted in a pizza delivery driver being shot in the arm on Sunday night. At approximately 10:00PM, a 23-year-old male delivery driver made a delivery to a building at Woodmill Apartments.  As he was leaving, he was approached by two black males who demanded money.  The victim advised he did not have money.  The suspects then demanded his car keys and the driver refused.  One of the suspects fired one shot, striking the driver in the arm before both suspects fled on foot.  The victim drove himself to Kent General Hospital where he was treated and released for a single wound.
