MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) - A pizza delivery driver who was robbed and shot in July is sharing his story for the first time, and it does not sound like he is the first victim.

The delivery driver, Corey Levy, testified in court Wednesday. He confronted the 16-year-old accused of shooting and robbing him at Cypress Hill Apartments last summer.

Demarcus "Jr." Jones and his alleged accomplice, Quindarius "Quin" Reed, were both 15 years old at the time of the crime.

Judge Dan Michael ruled to transfer the teens to adult court where they will face felony charges.

Vice Lords gang member Zaccheus "Zack" Scott, 19, was also charged in the crime.

"I'm blessed without a doubt," said Levy. "Still to this day I'm shaken up and I probably always will be to a certain extent."

After knocking on three doors, someone answered, called 911 and helped Levy before an ambulance arrived.

"Being face to face with someone who attempted to take your life, and being that close to them in that type of setting. It was just too much for me," he said.

Levy slipped into a coma after the incident, and he spent 64 days in the hospital following the shooting.

Devon Champion, 19, was also in court. He is a victim of another shooting connected to Scott and Jones.

Now without a right eye, Champion, like Levy seeks justice.

"Jail is the place for them. Because who's to say the wouldn't do it to somebody else," said Champion.
