Four suspects allegedly killed deliveryman for a pizza

Four people are under arrest for allegedly placing a bogus takeout order that led to an abandoned house so they could shoot the deliveryman and
steal the pizza.

The deliveryman, 30-year-old Ronald Anderson Jr., died Jan. 3rd.

“They were all friends, they all know each other, and for some reason,
they came up with the idea to order pizza and rob the man for the food,”
Homicide Capt. James Clark said. “I would say they were intent on
killing him from the second he got out of the vehicle.”

“When he pulled up, he didn’t have a chance.”

Xylaca Devlin, 18, one of four people staying at a house near the block
where the incident occurred, allegedly placed the order from Hot Spot
Pizza at 7000 Elmwood Avenue and gave a delivery address of 2548 South
Massey Street. Devlin and fellow defendant Keyona Jones, 18, waited outside
in front of the property as decoys to make the home seem occupied,
police said.

Anderson Jr. barely made it out of the car when he was ambushed by two armed men, allegedly Rashad Cheeseboro, 23, and Michael Covington, 21. The shot him multiple times, took the pizza and fled on foot. Investigators were unsure why they did not search the victim for other valuables.

All four suspects are charged with murder.

Police arrested Devlin first and took Jones, the final suspect arrested, into custody Friday. Investigators solved the case by backtracking from the phone order and receiving help from the community, Capt. Clark said. He also said that police are reviewing past area robberies to determine if any fit the same pattern.

“It was totally senseless,” Clark said. “The only thing they got away with was a pizza.”

According to Hot Spot’s menu, a plain extra-large pizza costs $10.90.
