A deliveryman for the Pizza Hut on Rossville Boulevard said he got a call for a delivery on Cannon Avenue.

He said when he arrived a black male wearing a black hoodie flagged him down three houses away.

The pizza guy said the person who motioned him over was in a red Cavalier. He said he could see two other black males lying down in the back seat.
