Rizzoli & Isles star Angie Harmon accused a delivery driver of shooting and killing her dog at her North Carolina home.

Angie Harmon’s dog killed by Instacart shopper

“This Easter weekend a man delivering groceries for Instacart shot [and] killed our precious Oliver,” the actress posted to her Instagram account on Monday afternoon.

“He got out of his car, delivered the food [and] then shot our dog,” Harmon captioned a carousel of photos and a video featuring Oliver.

She said that the pet killing shopper committed the act because he knew that the property wasn’t being surveilled at the time.

“Our ring camera was charging in the house, which he saw [and] then knew he wasn’t being recorded,” the Law & Order star detailed.

Harmon called the police to report the shooting, but did not get the justice she felt her dog Oliver deserved.

According to WSOC-TV, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department arrived at Harmon’s residence right before noon on Saturday.

The driver told police he went to the home to deliver consumable goods, when he was attacked by Oliver.

The driver claimed 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.”

Harmon retorted that the police “let him go” because the shopper “claimed self defense.”

She noted that the shooter “did not have a scratch or bite on him,” and his clothing was not torn by the incident.

“No criminal charges have been filed about this incident, and CMPD is not currently seeking any additional parties,” the department acknowledged in a statement. “CMPD’s Animal Care and Control also responded to the scene.”

Harmon said that the man was not the shopper that Instacart had listed under her order.

“He was shopping under a woman’s identity named Merle,” she explained on the post.

A digital receipt from the transaction showed that the shopper on the account was a female with a two year record of more than 6,000 orders delivered.

“He shot our dog with my daughters [and] myself at home [and] just kept saying, “yeah, I shot your dog. Yeah I did,” Harmon commented about the incident.

“We are completely traumatized [and] beyond devastated at the loss of our beloved boy [and] family member.”

Instacart released a statement acknowledging that they were “deeply saddened and disturbed” about Oliver’s death.

“We have no tolerance for violence of any kind, and the shopper’s account was immediately suspended from our platform,” the company said.

“We have been in direct contact with the customer and are cooperating with law enforcement on their investigation.”

Harmon addressed the shooter in an Instagram Story the same day.

“To the man who took Ollie away from us: Your actions are despicable and inexcusable,” she wrote.

“You’ve not only robbed us of a beloved member of our family, but you’ve traumatized us beyond measure.”

“The fact that someone could commit such a heartless act is beyond comprehension to me,” Harmon concluded.

“And I’m devastated that I didn’t get to say goodbye to him.
