Domino's Pizza Delivery Driver Slain in SUV in Burtonsville, Maryland

The man found fatally wounded inside a Jeep in Burtonsville, Maryland, Monday night has been identified as a Rockville man who was working as a pizza delivery driver at the time.

Montgomery County Police are searching for a suspect in the death of Francesco Michael Digiovanni, 45. Detectives are investigating the case as a homicide.

Neighbors in the area of Aldora Circle heard shots just after 11 p.m. Monday.

The victim had just delivered a pizza for Domino's and managed to drive for a couple of blocks after he was shot.

Digiovanni was found slumped over the steering wheel of his Jeep on Ballinger Drive at Autumn Glen Circle. First responders attempted life-saving measures but the victim died at the scene. 

"It's tragic," said Ed Traecy, who owns the Burtonsville Domino's franchise. "I'm having a hard time understanding why."

The Domino's stayed closed Tuesday.

The scene is just a block away from where a couple was shot to death inside their car three months ago

Gregory Terrell Jones, 24, of Martinsville, West Virginia, was charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of Ashley Dickinson, 34, and Joshua Frazier, 29.
