A 56-year-old Nigerian pizza delivery man, Abdulganiyu Sanusi, was reportedly shot and killed in a daylight robbery in the U.S on Saturday.
While the police are trying to find the suspect following the incident that occurred at Pittsburgh, it was gathered that the shooting occurred in the afternoon, on the 100 block of N. Saint Clair St. in East Liberty, according to reports.
The Nigerian pizza delivery man had got out of his car, and a witness reportedly heard someone say “give me your money,” followed by a gunshot. The shooter fled and Sanusi died at the scene. A co-worker said the victim, identified as Abdulganiyu Sanusi of Lincoln-Lemington by the Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Office, was making his first delivery of the day when he was shot.
Originally, Sanusi was supposed to make a delivery to a bogus address on Penn Avenue, on the Wilkinsburg-city line.
Pittsburgh Police spokesman Chris Togneri told reporters “as he was going to 201 Penn Avenue, the caller who called into the original Domino’s changed the address and said to deliver the pizzas to 225 St Clair Street.”
An employee at the Sheraden Square Domino’s where Sanusi worked said he and his co-workers were heartbroken by the shooting. He described Sanusi as one of the pizza restaurant’s best drivers. Domino’s spokesperson released a statement to WTAE, saying, “The idea of an innocent man being gunned down in broad daylight in the act of doing his job, is beyond words.”
