Girl, 17, ‘lured Domino’s delivery man with fake pizza order before killing him’
A 17-year-old girl shot dead a new father after luring him to an abandoned house with a fake pizza order, court documents show .
Jaelynn Billups tried to rob Joshua Ungersma while he was delivering the pizza but shot him when he asked someone to call police in Lafayette, Indiana, a witness claims.
Police found the 37-year-old dead on Monday, August 31 after there were reports of ‘shots fired’ at around 11.15pm.
They also found the body of Billups’s boyfriend Alberto Vanmeter, 19, nearby with a Domino’s pizza box, two drinks and cash laying on the ground beside him.
Mr Ungersma is believed to have shot Vanmeter in self-defence after the 19-year-old tried to rob him.
Billups allegedly shot the delivery man at point blank range.

The Lafayette Journal & Courier reports that Mr Ungersma was found with ‘a .38 S&W revolver in his pocket with the rounds fired’.
He had a permit to carry the gun.
A coroner ruled that Mr Ungersma died of multiple gunshot wounds and Vanmeter died of a single gunshot wound.
Billups was charged with killing Joshua Ungersma and is being held without bond.
