Delivering the Sunday morning newspaper turned into a scary gunfight for a Lakeland Ledger carrier and her boyfriend.

The two got caught in the middle of a family fight.

Tiffany Simo and her boyfriend, Doug Romeo, were delivering papers on West Lake Cannon Terrace when someone started shooting near their car.
