Austin, TX, November 16, 2019

An Uber Eats driver is counting his blessings after he and a wanna-be robber drew guns on each other while he was on a delivery….

Once he’d made the delivery and turned to walk back to his car, the driver saw a man standing ‘aggressively’ and very close behind him.

The delivery man didn’t wait for something bad to happen.  Instead, he shouted, “Get awawy from me!” at the stranger.  The man, later identified by police as Gabriel Menchaca Palomino, 37, didn’t listen.  Instead, he asked, “Do you know what time it is?”

It was a thinly veiled attempt to distract the Uber driver.  Meanwhile, Palomino pulled a bandana tied around his neck up over his mouth and nose….

Once his face was covered, Palomino pulled a Glock handgun out of his pocket and pointed it at the driver.  Unshaken, the delivery driver pulled out a Sig Sauer P238 and pointed it right at Palomino’s chest….

He legally owned and was legally carrying the gun he pulled on the thug.
