Authorities in Indiana say three teens killed a pizza delivery man during an alleged robbery then ate the food.

Indianapolis Police arrested Jasean Dale, 19, Juwuan Terry, 18, Jason Epeards, 18, for the shooting death of 24-year-old LaVon Drake, a Papa John’s delivery man on Monday night.

WXIN reported that Drake was gunned down during a robbery while delivering pizzas to a vacant residence.

Investigators say the suspects allegedly placed the delivery after breaking into the home.

Cops found Drake’s body in the empty home around 7:45 p.m.

Law enforcement officials said detectives managed to track down the suspects Tuesday with the help of a neighbor, who saw the teens’ car and wrote down the license plate.

After their arrests, the three suspects allegedly admitted to fatally shooting Drake.

All three teens are facing murder charges. Additionally, Epeards and Terry also face robbery counts, according to court records.

Friends told the local media that Drake worked as a manager at Papa John’s and was covering for his co-workers the night when was killed.

“He was a good young man, a great employee and a great manager, I’m going to miss him so much,” his colleague Cheyenne Pryor told The Indianapolis Star.
