pizza deliveryman murdered

Last night in Richmond, CA, 38-year-old Thanh Thach, a Pizza Hut deliverman, was trying to find an address when he was shot and killed during a possible robbery attempt: Pizza deliveryman shot to death while looking for Richmond address.

According to police, Thach was searching for a delivery address when he was accosted by one or two men, who shot him twice then fled without taking his cell phone, money or pizza. The motive for the slaying was unclear, though police say it's possible it was "robbery gone bad" or maybe some kind of gang initiation rite. Either way, it's senseless.

Sadly, Thach leaves behind a wife and two kids. He had lived in the United States for 13 years and just recently became a citizen in September. His wife says it was the happiest day of his life. Tragic. Richmond police were asking anyone with information on the murder to call (510) 620-6643.
