Suspects wanted for November’s pizza delivery man murder in Columbia arrested

Columbia, South Carolina – On Saturday, the Columbia Police Department reported the capture of two young men linked to the shooting death of a pizza delivery man last November.

Both suspects are teenagers

The police have charged Trevor Harris, 18, and his 17-year-old cousin with murder, attempted armed robbery, plotting a crime, and having a weapon in a violent act.

These teenagers are believed to have planned to rob a 48-year-old pizza delivery guy. They ordered pizza to an empty apartment in Tamarind Apartments on November 29, 2023. When the delivery man, Christopher Shirah, arrived, they tried to rob him, then shot and killed him, and fled.

They were then taken to the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.
