NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Four people – there of them teenagers – were charged Monday in the robbery and murder of a Pizza Hut delivery man in Newark last week.
Two 17-year-olds and a 16-year-old – whose names have not been released – and Shaquille Faines, 20, have all been charged with felony murder, robbery, conspiracy and weapons counts in the attack that killed Jesus Torres, 20, of Newark.
Torres, a delivery man for Pizza Hut, was shot during an apparent robbery on Sunday, Sept. 1, prosecutors said. He was driving down the 300 block of South 11th Street in Newark when several males surrounded his car and tried to rob him, police said.
