Angie Harmon says that her dog Oliver was shot and killed over Easter weekend at her Charlotte, N.C. home.

The Rizzoli & Isles actress, 51, shared on Monday via Instagram that Oliver, was killed by an Instacart delivery man on Saturday.

In a post filled with photos and videos of the German shepherd/beagle mix, Harmon wrote that the driver "got out of his car, delivered the food & THEN shot [their] dog."

"This Easter weekend a man delivering groceries for Instacart shot & killed our precious Oliver," she wrote. "Our ring camera was charging in the house, which he saw & then knew he wasn't being recorded."

An Instacart representative said in a statement to PEOPLE, "We were deeply saddened and disturbed to hear about this incident.

Harmon explained that authorities let the driver "go, because he claimed 'self-defense,'" adding, "He did not have a scratch or bite on him nor were his pants torn."

Per a statement shared with PEOPLE, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department learned in their investigation that the driver arrived at the home and delivered the order. "The driver told officers that a dog attacked him while he was at the residence and that he defended himself by firing a single gunshot, striking and mortally wounding the dog. Another dog was present at the residence but did not attack," per CMPD Public Affairs. The CMPD’s Animal Care and Control also responded to the scene.

The driver was not charged with any criminal charges. Additionally, the "CMPD is not currently seeking any additional parties."

"He was shopping under a woman’s identity," Harmon added on Instagram "He shot our dog with my daughters & myself at home & just kept saying, 'Yeah, I shot your dog. Yeah I did.'"

"We are completely traumatized & beyond devastated at the loss of our beloved boy & family member. #RIP OLLIE 🐶🐾🕊️🌈."

The Law & Order alum also shared an Instagram Story with the news. "To the man who took Ollie away from us: your actions are despicable and inexcusable," she wrote. "You've not only robbed us of a beloved member of our family but you've also traumatized us beyond measure."

"The fact that someone could commit such a heartless act is beyond comprehension to me and I'm devastated that I didn't get to say goodbye to him," she concluded.
