A delivery job is considered one of the essential services during the pandemic. However, it can be a dangerous job just like the incident where Instacart delivery workers shot at in Florida after wrong address mishap.

Instacart Delivery Workers Shot At In Florida After Wrong Address Mishap

Two Instacart delivery workers in Florida were shot at after delivering to the wrong address, according to a report by the Davie Police Department. Waldes Thomas Jr. and Diamond D'arville were attempting to deliver groceries on April 15 when they drove onto the property of Antonio Caccavale in Southwest Ranches, Florida. Caccavale told police he saw the vehicle on his property and told his teenage son to tell them to leave.
His son called for help, and when Caccavale approached the car, he said the driver was allegedly drivingerratically and began running over logs, boulders and a fence on the property, Davie police said.
The homeowner said he feared for the safety of himself and his son after the car allegedly ran over his foot and he pulled out his handgun and shot several rounds toward the tires of the car.

The couple told police they attempted to reverse out of the area but hit a boulder and Caccavale approached them aggressively and grabbed onto the driver door window, according to the report.
Thomas says he tried to leave the area and heard three close gunshots, according to the police report. The couple left the area following the shooting, police said. Davie police ultimately found that no charges should be filed because "each party appear justified in their actions based on the circumstances they perceived."
The incident comes after several high-profile instances of people being shot at, and in some cases killed, after mistakenly going to the wrong address. Ralph Yarl, a 16-year-old Black teenager, was shot on April 13 by a homeowner in Kansas City, Missouri, after he accidentally went to the wrong address to pick up his siblings.
Andrew Lester, 84, was charged with one count of felony assault in the first-degree and one felony count of armed criminal action in Yarl's shooting. He pleaded not guilty in Clay County on April 19.
In another incident, 20-year-old Kaylin Gillis was shot and killed on April 15 while in a car that mistakenly pulled into a driveway in rural upstate New York, authorities said. A group of four young adults were looking for a friend's house in the area when they drove their car up the wrong driveway.
They were turning around upon realizing their error when the homeowner, identified as 65-year-old Kevin Monahan, came outside with a gun and fired at their vehicle, according to Washington County Sheriff Jeffrey Murphy. Monahan was arrested and charged with second-degree murder.
In another incident, two Texas cheerleaders were shot on April 18 after one of them said they had mistakenly got into the wrong car in a parking lot after practice. One of the victims was treated and released at the scene, and the second cheerleader was helicoptered to a hospital in critical condition, police said.
The rise of incidents like these has led to concerns over gun violence and the use of force in the United States. Many have called for stricter gun control laws and more stringent regulations on the use of deadly force by homeowners.
In response to the shooting of the Instacart delivery workers, Broward County State Attorney Harold Pryor said his office's prosecutors will decide whether charges should be filed. "I contacted the Davie Police Department to request a full investigation," Pryor said.
Instacart also issued a statement expressing concern over the incident.
The safety of the entire Instacart community is incredibly important to us, and we take immediate action when we receive reports of violence or threats of violence made against any member of the Instacart community. We have reached out to the shopper and will cooperate with law enforcement on any ongoing investigation.- Instacart's Statement
It is unclear what actions, if any, Instacart will take to address the safety concerns of its delivery workers.
