Hopkinsville Police say just before 11 pm 44-year-old Jefferey Karasiewicz, of Hopkinsville, was delivering a pizza to a home on Foxfield Road when he was shot in the arm by a juvenile attempting to steal his car.
Karasiewicz was taken to Jennie Stuart Medical Center by ambulance then flown to Skyline Medical Center in Nashville.
Investigators say the juvenile who shot Karasiewicz was also involved in two other robberies that happened earlier in the night in Oak Grove.
Oak Grove Police say a man armed with a gun robbed a woman in the Walmart parking lot and took her car just before 10 pm.
As authorities were investigating the parking lot robbery, they were called to Luigi’s Pizza after three men entered the restaurant armed with a gun.
As Hopkinsville Police were in route to the shooting on Foxfield Road, they spotted the pizza delivery car and the vehicle used in the Luigi’s Pizza robbery on Pyle Lane and attempted to stop the vehicle.
Police say both vehicles fled with the car used in the Luigi’s Pizza robbery stopping on Fort Campbell Boulevard in the area of the Kentucky Veterans Cemetery West and the suspects inside fleeing on foot.
The vehicle taken from the pizza delivery driver continued to flee before Christian County deputies used spike strips to deflate the tires and the car ran off the road hitting a truck at the Holiday Inn in Oak Grove.
The juvenile driver who allegedly stole the pizza delivery vehicle and shot the delivery driver was arrested and charged with, first-degree robbery, first-degree assault, and first-degree fleeing or evading police.
Those in the vehicle from the Luigi’s Pizza robbery have not been located. Karasiewicz was taken to Jennie Stuart Medical Center by ambulance then flown to Skyline Medical Center in Nashville.
Police ask if you have any information about any of the robberies to call the Hopkinsville-Christian County dispatch at 270-890-1300.
