Actress Angie Harmon says her dog Ollie was shot and killed by delivery driver: “Completely traumatized & beyond devastated”

Actress Angie Harmon has announced some heartbreaking news: her pet dog was shot and killed by a delivery driver. The Rizzoli & Isles star wrote on Instagram that her pet dog, Oliver, was killed in a shocking incident on Easter weekend. 

 The actress had groceries delivered to her home via Instacart, and the delivery driver reportedly shot and killed the dog, even admitting to it. “He shot our dog with my daughters & myself at home & just kept saying, ‘yeah, I shot your dog. Yeah I did,'” Harmon recalled on Instagram.

Making things even worse, the man was let off the hook by the police because he claimed “self defense,” a claim Harmon disputes. “He did not have a scratch or bite on him nor were his pants torn,” the Law & Order actress wrote. 

She also said her Ring doorbell camera was charging inside so she has no video of the incident, “which he saw & then knew he wasn’t being recorded.” Harmon added that the man was “shopping under a woman’s identity named Merle,” and posted a screenshot in her Instagram stories.
“The driver told officers that a dog attacked him while he was at the residence and that he defended himself by firing a single gunshot, striking and mortally wounding the dog,” the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department Public Affairs told People. 

“Another dog was present at the residence but did not attack.” Instacart also released a statement to the outlet, saying they were “deeply saddened and disturbed to hear about this incident.” “We have no tolerance for violence of any kind, and the shopper account was immediately suspended from our platform. We have been in direct contact with the customer and are cooperating with law enforcement on their investigation.”
Meanwhile, Angie Harmon and her family are mourning the tragic loss. “We are completely traumatized & beyond devastated at the loss of our beloved boy & family member,” Harmon wrote on Instagram, sharing photos of her late dog. “To the man who took Ollie away from us: your actions are despicable and inexcusable,” she added in her Instagram stories. 

“You’ve not only robbed us of a beloved member of our family but you’ve also traumatized us beyond measure. The fact that someone could commit such a heartless act is beyond comprehension to me and I’m devastated that I didn’t get to say goodbye to him.”
What a shocking story — our hearts are with Angie Harmon and her family during this devastating time. We hope they are able to get some justice in this case.
