Angie Harmon Sues Instacart, Deliveryman Who Killed Her Dog


Angie Harmon has filed a lawsuit against Instacart and deliveryman Christopher Anthoney Reid for shooting and killing her dog Oliver in March. The lawsuit, filed in Mecklenberg County, North Carolina, accuses Reid of trespassing, negligence, and emotional distress, while holding Instacart responsible for negligent hiring and supervision. Harmon is seeking $25,000 in damages, with the final amount to be determined in court.

The suit claims that Reid used a false identity during the delivery, and that Harmon rushed outside upon hearing a gunshot, only to find her dog shot and Reid placing a gun in his pocket. The lawsuit alleges that Reid had ample opportunity to leave without harming the dog and that Instacart failed in its duty to screen and supervise its employees. (People)
