(Newser) – A Missouri Amazon delivery driver who police say parked his van illegally in a handicapped-accessible parking spot is in critical condition in a hospital after a man shot him in a dispute over the space, the AP reports. St. Charles Police Lt. Tom Wilkison says the 21-year-old driver was taken Tuesday to a hospital in critical but stable condition with a back wound. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the dispute started when a 65-year-old man pulled out a cellphone to record that the driver had parked illegally. During a struggle over the phone, the older man fell and then fired shots as the driver walked away. It wasn't known if the older man had a disability. Amazon in a statement described the incident as "terrible." The driver works for a third-party service provider. (Read more Amazon stories.)
