A pizza delivery driver in Tennessee parked in the wrong driveway, so the owner of the home opened fire on the teen driver, police said.

Around 8 p.m. on April 29, Caiden Wheeler, 18, was to make a delivery to a house in Ashland City, according to an arrest warrant obtained by WTVF.

Wheeler accidentally parked in the wrong driveway, delivered the Domino’s pizza to the correct house and got back into his truck, officials said.

That is when 32-year-old Ryan S. Babcock allegedly ran at him and opened fire, police said.

In total, Babcock is accused of firing seven shots at Wheeler during the incident that was captured on a Ring camera. Police recovered all seven shell casings, three of which struck the truck.

Babcock was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, authorities said.

Wheeler believes Babcock should face more serious charges. He told WTVF, “So I was literally about to get killed right there. It is attempted murder in my opinion.”

According to the report, Babcock allegedly told police he saw a truck in his driveway on his Ring camera and he thought someone was trying to break into his vehicle.


He told police he grabbed his 9mm handgun, ran outside and started shooting in order to disable the truck.

“I understand keeping your firearm, trying to be protective … protect your family, but I don’t think you should automatically shoot at someone because they pulled in," Wheeler told WTVF. "I don’t think that’s right."
