According to police, a 16-year-old called Marco’s Pizza in College Park for a delivery to an abandoned home.
The victim 20-year-old King Melton showed up with the pizza when he was attacked. In an interview with WSB-TV King explained, “I turn around and boom, ‘Drop it.’ (I said), ‘It’s just pizza. Just take it.’ As he’s standing there holding me up he’s like telling me to empty your pockets.’”
Melton tried to fight off the attackers who were trying to steal his car when he was shot three times.
After the incident police said that King was set up by 16-year-old Tyyneefah Wells who called Marco’s Pizza. 14-year-old Dequandre Weaver who shot King and 13-year-old Anthony Cleveland who watched.
The police were able to track the three teenagers down after they car jacked a female pizza driver the following day.
