13-year-old arrested for pizza delivery driver’s murder

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — Police say a 13-year-old boy has been arrested and charged with aggravated murder and aggravated robbery in connection with the shooting death of a pizza delivery driver.

Police were called on July 30 to the intersection of South Hamilton Road and Kimberly Parkway after a report of a minivan crashed into a pole.

Officers discovered 59-year-old James A. Flannery inside the van with a gunshot wound to the chest.

Flannery was taken to an area hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

According to police, Flannery was a pizza delivery driver who was attempting to make a delivery at a nearby home on Kenaston Drive when he was shot during an altercation.

Investigators said the home was vacant and that it is likely that he was set up for a robbery. Investigators believe there was more than one robber and say they got away with two pizzas and a small amount of cash.

The first suspect, 18-year-old Sir Jeffrey Scott Carroll, was arrested Wednesday and charged with aggravated murder.

At this time, detectives believe that there may be still more participants in this crime and are asking anyone with any information to contact the Columbus Division of Police Homicide Unit at 645-4730 or Crime Stoppers at 645-TIPS.
