Angie Harmon accused an Instacart delivery driver of shooting and killing her family dog ​​in a social media post shared Monday.

The fatal shooting of Harmon’s dog named Oliver occurred over Easter weekend, shortly after a man delivered an order to the “Rizzoli & Isles” star’s home.

“He got out of his car, delivered the food and THEN shot our dog,” Harmon wrote on Instagram. “Our circle camera was charging in the house, he saw it and then knew it wasn’t being recorded.”

According to the actress, the delivery man claimed “self-defense” and the police let him go.

“He didn’t have any scratches or bites and his pants weren’t torn,” he alleged.

“I was shopping under the identity of a woman named Merle… the photo is in my story,” he added. Harmon shared a screenshot of the delivery confirmation that showed a photo of a woman.

“He shot our dog with my daughters and I at home and he kept saying, ‘Yes, I shot your dog. Yes, I did,'” she explained. “We are completely traumatized and beyond devastated by the loss of our beloved child and family member.”

A representative for Harmon did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.

Instacart suspended the delivery driver’s profile and is working with authorities to investigate, a spokesperson told Fox News Digital.

“We are deeply saddened and disturbed to learn of this incident,” Instacart said in a statement. “We do not tolerate violence of any kind and the buyer’s account was immediately suspended from our platform. We have been in direct contact with the customer and are cooperating with authorities in their investigation.”

Authorities investigated the March 30 incident and no charges were filed, a Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department spokesperson told Fox News Digital.

“Upon arrival, officers located and spoke with all parties involved,” the spokesperson said. “The investigation revealed that a delivery driver arrived at the residence to deliver consumer goods. The driver told officers that a dog attacked him while he was at the residence and that he defended himself by firing a single shot, hitting and fatally wounding the dog. “Another dog was present at the residence but did not attack.”

CMPD Animal Care and Control also responded to the scene.
