Investigators believe the suspects were calling other pizza shops the night of the shooting.

Police said they traced both suspects to a location in Lincoln-Lemington around 5 p.m. on Thursday, where they were both taken into custody.

Abdulganiyu Sanusi, who also went by Patrick Adesanya, was delivering pizza to the 200 block of Penn Avenue, according to police. Sanusi was a husband and a father of seven children.

According to the criminal complaint, Garland told investigators, "I feel bad.  No one should grow up without a father. If I could take it back, I would."

A short time later, the alleged customer called the store to change the delivery address to 125 North St. Clair Street. As he was getting out of his car, police say a witness heard someone yell, "Give me your money!" and then a gunshot.
