A man fired a gunshot during the robbery of a pizza deliveryman on 19th Street early Wednesday morning, according to a Niagara Falls police report.
The victim told police he delivered food to a man in an apartment on 19th, between Ferry Avenue and Niagara Street, just after midnight. While he was making change in a backyard near the door to a rear apartment, another man approached and demanded money while displaying a handgun, according to a report.
The victim said he pushed the first man out of the way and ran back to his vehicle. While he was running, he heard a shot fired by the men in the backyard. The victim was not hit by the bullet, according to the report.
The robbers were seen running north through an alleyway between 19th and 20th streets and crossing Ferry Avenue.
