Man accused of shooting at delivery driver, throwing bombs

Friday night was pizza night for a Missouri man but after receiving his pie, he didn't want to hand over the cold hard cash so he pulled a gun, police say.

According to police - it happened at a mobile home in the St. Louis, Missouri area. Police say the unnamed suspect ordered his pizza and then waited for the delivery driver to arrive. When the doorbell rang, police said they disagreed over the price and he pulled the gun out and started firing. Then he took off.

Police hopped in line behind him and followed him into Illinois and then back ti Missouri. Along the way, police said he threw homemade bombs at police.

It took spike strips and a K9 officer to finally get him to stop. He was arrested and now faces several charges.

Jennifer Eichs lives near the man. She and other neighbors had a hard time being concerned with him. After all, there are outlines of human bodies on his driveway

"He burned those into the ground one night," she said. Eichs also said never felt threatened until Friday. "That`s when the gunshots started, and I grabbed my daughter and ran into the hallway."

One of those bullets hit her brand new car that was parked outside. 

Despite the gunshots and homemad bohomemadelice say nobody was seriously hurt.
