CHICAGO -- A 16-year-old boy has been charged as an adult in the Dec. 10 murder of a Chicago pizza delivery driver (See "Chicago delivery driver murdered in suspected set-up").

According to the Chicago Tribune, Jacques Avery has been charged with first-degree murder in the shooting of Eduardo Flores, a 29-year-old father of two. Avery's bond was set at $800,000.

Illinois assistant state's atty. Nancy Galassini alleges Avery ordered a pizza in order to rob Flores, and that Avery shot Flores.

Flores was found mortally wounded in his delivery vehicle after it crashed following the shooting. He survived long enough to provide details of the assault, but died later at a local hospital.

Police department leaders in Suffolk, Va., charged its officers to come up with new and proactive ideas for protecting the city. Among their multiple suggestions, one was to better protect pizza delivery drivers from ambushes at abandoned homes.

According to the Virginia-Pilot, police plan to identify all abandoned residences in their respective patrol areas and provide those addresses to pizza delivery companies. If someone calls for delivery to one of those identified addresses, the pizzeria can refuse to bring the order.
