3, including a 17-year-old boy, charged in pizza delivery shooting

Bail denied pending possible homicide charges

EAST STROUDSBURG, Pa. - Three people, including a 17-year-old boy, have been charged in connection with the shooting of a pizza delivery man in Monroe County.

Israel Zebulun Berrios, 17, Salvador Roberts Jr., 21, and Carolina Carmona, 30, all face multiple assault, robbery, and even homicide charges in the event the victim dies. Bail was also denied for all three pending any potential homicide charges, per court documents.

The 58-year-old victim was shot in the face and remains in critical condition.

Officers say they found a 58-year-old male suffering from a gunshot wound when they arrived in the 400 block of Normal Street in East Stroudsburg, just before 1:30 a.m. Monday.

According to Pennsylvania State Police, the investigation shows an order was called into a Domino's Pizza in East Stroudsburg for a delivery to the ROTC office.

Police say the driver arrived, exited the vehicle, and then encountered the suspects who demanded his money.

Police say after he repeatedly denied he had any money, he was shot in the face and a money bag was removed from his person.

The suspect then fled the area and the victim was eventually airlifted to Lehigh Valley Cedar Crest for treatment, according to the police.

A preliminary hearing for all three suspects has been set for December 19, 2017.
