 A Chinese food deliveryman fought off two would-be robbers at an apartment building on Monday night.
 Police said the man went to the Creekside North apartments on Devonport Drive at around 9:30 p.m. and was in the hallway when he was approached by two men.
 One man had a gun.
 The police said the deliveryman wrestled with the men and a shot was fired out into the breezeway, where it hit a wall.
 The deliveryman then pulled out his own gun and police said the men ran off.
 A neighbor who heard the shot called police.
 The suspects and the deliveryman were gone when police arrived.
 Police said they had to go to the deliveryman's workplace to get the suspect's weapon.
 No arrests have been made and no one was hurt in the incident.
