NYPD: Suspects in custody for Staten Island murder
There are several suspects in custody in relation to the shooting death of delivery man in Staten Island earlier this week.
Police said Friday that they had recovered a weapon and there are now at least two people in custody.
Richard Salvia, who was in his 50s, was fatally shot in the head Tuesday night while on a delivery for Crown Palace restaurant Tuesday night on a dead-end street in the Mariners’ Harbor neighborhood. Residents of the neighborhood told the Staten Island Advance that there had been a number of robberies of delivery workers in the area recently.
“They call delivery people, and when they come out here, they rob them,” a woman told the Staten Island Advance. “This has happened half a dozen times, if not more.”
The Advance reported on Friday that Salvia had $136 in cash at the time of the robbery.
