On Feb. 16, 2022, a 46-year-old female DoorDash driver arrived at the home of John Norman, 33, with a pizza delivery, court records show. As she approached the house, Norman is accused of firing a shot with a shotgun at the woman through the glass part of his door.
The delivery driver ran to her car and called the police. She told officers she had glass all over her hair and in her clothes.
The driver stated she arrived at Norman’s house in Barton and put “arrive” on her DoorDash app. She said it appeared Norman was waiting for her, police said.
The police report didn’t state why Norman fired the shot at the driver.
Once officers arrived at the scene, officers noticed Norman’s eyes were “very watery in appearance and severely bloodshot” and his “speech was slurred and drawn out, and he was unbalanced while walking,” court records state.
