People think of delivering process as like delivering Pizzas. Not so! The Pizza recipient usually does not shoot you for fogetting pepperoni and anchovies!

Burk Neal Ashford was being held at the Vista jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and illegally and negligently discharging a firearm, jail records show. His bail was $75,000.
The process-server and his partner went to Ashford’s house in the 1400 block of Red Bark Road to serve papers some time before 10 p.m., Lt. Mike Loarie said. Some kind of altercation ensued, and Ashford took out a .22-caliber revolver and fired two rounds, hitting one of the men in the leg, Loarie said.
The shooting victim and his partner ran to their car, Loarie said. They drove to Del Dios Highway and Date Lane and called 911.
The victim was taken to Palomar Medical Center with a wound to the left thigh, Escondido Fire paramedics said. He was expected to survive. Police had not released his name Wednesday.
Ashford called police just before 10 p.m. to report the shooting, Loarie said.
