SE Albuquerque - According to a criminal complaint, on March 30th, 2023, Bernalillo County Deputies were called to the 4000 block of Rosson Ct SE, in reference to a DoorDash driver who had a gun pointed at him because the DoorDash order he delivered was missing food.
Deputies questioned the driver/victim who stated that he left the food on the door and drove away. He got a message from a male customer (suspect) stating the order was missing items. The driver and 21-year-old Braxton McCarty were arguing when McCarty pulled out a handgun and pointed it at the driver/victim. The driver/victim at some point pushed the emergency button on the DoorDash delivery app notifying DoorDash that he was in danger.
The criminal complaint does not indicate if the missing item was a food item, such as an entree or dessert, or just sauce.
The criminal complaint goes on to say that deputies made contact with McCarty and his girlfriend at the residence. They questioned McCarty and arrested him. McCarty asked deputies if it was because of the handgun the driver had seen. BCSO had to obtain a warrant to search the house and found the reported gun used in the crime.
This is at least the second time that BCSO has dealt with a DoorDash driver being victimized by a firearm. The last case was a family who shot at a DoorDash driver, which caused a SWAT standoff.
McCarty is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and he has a pre-trial detention hearing scheduled.
