Two teenagers, D’Ambrosse Garland, 18, and Timothy Walls, 17, have been arrested in connection with the ambush killing of Nigerian pizza delivery man, Abdulganiyu Sanusi, in Pittsburgh, US.
The duo are both charged with homicide in the Oct. 13 shooting death of Sanusi. The deceased, a 56-year-old driver for Domino’s, was delivering a pizza to a residence on North St. Clair Street in East Liberty about 12:30 p.m. when he was shot twice, according to police.
He was pronounced dead at the scene. Sanusi, a Nigerian immigrant who had been in the United States for about two years, worked several jobs to support a wife and seven children still living in Nigeria.
Sanusi was heading to Penn Avenue, when the person who ordered the pizza, asked him to change the delivery point to North St. Clair Street, according to police.
Walls declined to speak with police, but Garland told officers the gun “just went off,” according to the complaint. Asked what he did after the shooting, Garland just shrugged, police said. .
He would not tell police who he was with, saying only that he would “take his on the chin.” He told police he felt bad about the shooting. “No one should grow up without a father,” he told officers, according to the complaint. “If I could take it back, I would.”
