NEWARK - Police say they have made four arrests in the murder of a Pizza Hut deliveryman in Newark.

Shaquille Faines, 20, along with two 17-year-olds and a 16-year-old face a number of charges in connection with the murder of Jesus Torres. The pizza deliveryman was shot and killed on Sept.1 during an apparent robbery on South 11th Street.

Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn A. Murray and Newark Police Director Samuel DeMaio say all four suspects have been charged with felony murder, robbery, conspiracy to commit murder and weapons possession charges.

"I hope that bringing the suspects responsible for this senseless crime to justice so quickly will bring some sense of solace to the Torres family," Murray says.
Faines is being held in the Essex County Jail on $1 million bail.

The three juveniles were remanded to the Essex County Youth House. Chief Assistant Prosecutor Thomas S. Fennelly says a decision has not yet been made on whether or not they will be tried as adults.
