Food delivery robot confuses LAPD at Hollywood high school crime scene


When you have a job to do, you have a job to do.

At least that’s the work ethic of a food delivery robot named Connie, whose indifferent actions went viral this week after walking through a crime scene in Los Angeles.

The videoshared on multiple social media platformsshows Connie driving down a sidewalk on Tuesday and stopping at an intersection before the crime scene.

People who appear to be TV cameramen in the video watch as the robot pulls up in front of the yellow crime scene tape apparently calculating its next move. After a few seconds, one of them lifts the ribbon and the robot resumes its trajectory.

As the robot passes a group of uniformed police at the scene, some of the cops turn around, seemingly puzzled, watching it pass.

The crime scene was from an active shooter call at Hollywood High School, according to Los Angeles Schools. Just before 9:45 a.m., the Los Angeles Police Department responded to the school for a gunshot call report.

Ultimately, School District Superintendent Alberto M. Carvalho said that LAPD determined the call was a hoax.

And Connie, who the video shows continuing on her way, does not appear to have been charged with interfering with the police.
