Angie Harmon accused an Instacart delivery driver of shooting and killing her family’s dog in a social media post shared Monday.The fatal shooting of Harmon’s dog named Oliver occurred over Easter weekend shortly after a man delivered an order to the “Rizzoli & Isles” star’s home.”He got out of his car, delivered the food & THEN shot our dog,” Harmon wrote on Instagram. “Our ring camera was charging in the house, which he saw & then knew he wasn’t being recorded.”According to the actress, the delivery driver claimed “self-defense” and was let go by police.

“He did not have a scratch or bite on him nor were his pants torn,” she alleged.”He was shopping under a woman’s identity named Merle… the pic is on my story,” she added. Harmon shared a screenshot of the delivery confirmation which featured a photo of a woman.”He shot our dog with my daughters & myself at home & just kept saying, ‘yeah, I shot your dog. Yeah I did,'” she explained. “We are completely traumatized & beyond devastated at the loss of our beloved boy & family member.”A representative for Harmon did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.

Instacart suspended the delivery driver profile and is working with authorities to investigate, a spokesperson told Fox News Digital.”We were deeply saddened and disturbed to hear about this incident,” Instacart said in a statement. “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.”Authorities did investigate the March 30 incident and no charges were filed, a spokesperson for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department told Fox News Digital.”Upon arrival, officers located and spoke to all involved parties,” the spokesperson said. “The investigation revealed that a delivery driver arrived at the residence to deliver consumable goods. 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. Another dog was present at the residence but did not attack.”CMPD’s Animal Care and Control also responded to the scene.

Harmon’s celebrity friends took to the comments to share support.”This is UNBELIEVABLE!” Paulina Porizkova wrote. “I don’t even know how to react to this.””Oh my god, I’m horrified beyond disbelief….” Allison Janney added. “I can’t even begin to imagine. Stunned.” Angie Harmon said she is “traumatized” over the shooting death of her dog.

If hes [sic] that quick to pull a gun out its [sic] just a matter of time before he does it again or to a person.”
