    Three people have been arrested in connection with the deadly shooting of a deliveryman bringing Chinese food to a home on Staten Island, police say.

    Devil Hill, 19; along with a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old were arrested on multiple charges including second-degree murder, robbery and criminal possession of a weapon. 

    It wasn't immediately clear if the three suspects, who are all from Staten Island, had attorneys. 

    The deliveryman, identified as 50-year-old Richard Salvia of Turnersville, N.J., was found shot in the head on a dead-end street in the Mariners Harbor area shortly before 9 p.m. Tuesday, police said. He was pronounced dead at Richmond University Hospital.

    Police said Friday they recovered the gun believed to have been used in the shooting.

    Salvia worked at Crown Palace restaurant. It's not clear if he was robbed.

    Residents in the area told the Staten Island Advance that several other delivery workers have been mugged while making deliveries on the street.
