There was a big break Wednesday in the case of a robbery that ended with a pizza delivery man dead.

The victim was ambushed, shot and killed while doing his job just trying to make a delivery last week. On Wednesday, charges were filed against suspects in the case.

Four suspects -- a 15-year-old girl, Darryl Thomas Reed, 18, Timothy Robinson, 17, and Jacobe White, 21, -- have been charged with capital murder. Authorities say the girl was taken into custody and transported to the Harris County Juvenile Probation center, and Reed was already in Harris County Jail on an unrelated charge and remains in custody. Police are still searching for Robinson and White.

Houston police believe it was robbery that led to the death of 40-year-old Phillip Little. Police say Little was a Domino's Pizza delivery man and had arrived at a home on November 3 for a delivery. As he was leaving, he was ambushed by several people. Neighbors heard gunshots.

Police say Little was wounded but was able to get into his car and drive off, but he drove the wrong way up Martin Luther King Blvd. and crashed through a backyard fence and into a storage shed. Police found Little slumped behind the wheel.

The motive, say authorities, was robbery.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Timothy Robinson and Jacob White are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
