Cops arrested three teens in connection to last week's deadly shooting of a delivery man in Staten Island.

 

 

Richard Salvia, 50, was shot and killed in northwestern Staten Island on April 1 after delivering Chinese food to a home on Grandview Avenue.

 

Police found Salvia, a New Jersey native, with a single gunshot wound to his head, which investigators said was fired by James Sanders, 16.

Sanders was arrested on Friday morning, along with Otoniel Carty, 17, and Devin Hill, 19.

Investigators said surveillance video from the night of the attack shows the three suspects making their approach to ambush Salvia, who pushed Sanders before the gun went off.

All three teens fled on foot, leaving the $136 the victim had on him before he was killed.

All three were also charged with murder in the second degree and multiple attempted robbery charges.

Both Sanders and Carty, however, were also charged with criminal possession of the loaded firearm that killed Salvia.
