‘Law & Order’ Actress Angie Harmon & Family ‘Completely Traumatized’ After Instacart Driver Fatally Shoots Her Dog + Delivery Company Responds

TV star Angie Harmon recently shared that she and her family are coping with the tragic loss of their beloved dog Oliver.

The 51-year-old alleged that an Instacart delivery driver fatally shot her pet over the Holiday weekend, claiming to have been acting in self-defense.

Angie Harmon shared several images of her “family member,” nicknamed Ollie, alongside an explanation of what happened to her Instagram. She wrote:

“This Easter weekend a man delivering groceries for Instacart shot & killed our precious Oliver. He got out of his car, delivered the food & THEN shot our dog. Our ring camera was charging in the house, which he saw & then knew he wasn’t being recorded.”

She continued:

“The police let him go b/c he claimed “self defense”. He did not have a scratch or bite on him nor were his pants torn. He was shopping under a woman’s identity named Merle… the pic is on my story…We are completely traumatized & beyond devastated at the loss of our beloved boy & family member.”

Harmon went on to share the aforementioned image to her IG Story. The picture, taken from the Instacart app, indeed confirmed that it was supposed to be a woman delivering the groceries. It does not appear, however, that the Instacart driver nor the account holder committed any criminal actions.

The Rizzoli & Isles star left another message for the person responsible, slamming their “despicable” actions and doubling down on her claims that she and at least two of her three daughters Finley, Avery, and Emery, are traumatized by the incident. She added:

“To the man who took Ollie away from us: your actions are despicable and inexcusable. You’ve not only robbed us of our beloved member of our family but you’ve also traumatized us beyond measure. The fact that someone could commit such a heartless act is beyond comprehension to me and I’m devastated that I didn’t get to say goodbye to him.”

Reportedly, a rep from Instacart has since officially responded to the tragic situation, making it known that the account holder has been suspended and they are working with the police to investigate, stating:

“We were deeply saddened and disturbed to hear about this incident…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.”
