Man who fled Syria war killed delivering pizza in US

Tue Feb 18, 2020 9:39 pm

A family friend of a pizza delivery driver who was recently gunned down in Baltimore says he had fled war-torn Syria to seek a better life.

The Baltimore Sun reported Tuesday that the killing of Khaled Heeba remains unsolved nearly two weeks after he died.

Therwa Hamza, a family friend, said Heeba escaped Syria's civil war with his parents in 2016.

He delivered pizzas to help support himself and his parents. The family quickly acclimated to life in the U.S.

Heeba, 31, was on his last delivery route of the night before he was shot in the chest on a sidewalk.

"He left his own country because it was a war-zone in Syria, just for him to end up getting murdered here," Theresa Birmingham, a co-worker, told the Sun, "He was just really a sweet guy."

Sad part is this is probably is just a random killing. So senseless.

Sad, and most likely true.

My immediate assumption was robbed. Even in good neighborhoods you sometimes hear of pizza deliveries being scheduled to abandoned properties and the driver being beaten and robbed and sometimes killed.

I'm sympathetic to him (I was friends with Syrian refugees in my previous city) but before it gets all crazy in this thread, let's think of all the Syrians that were gunned down in Syria that would NOT have in the US, and how many in the US are NOT gunned down.

No one here has gone off the deep end but I suspect within 20 posts someone would go on about how it's just as dangerous in the US as Syria.

RIP. I guess it matters not if he was killed because of racism or something else, but my Syrian friends back where I used to live were some of the nicest people I've ever met. Really puts a face to the conflict, especially when you hear of tens and hundreds of thousands of them killed
