PORT RICHEY, Fla. — A pizza delivery led to the location and arrest of a Pasco County homicide suspect on Wednesday.

Luis Marino Nieuwkerk was reportedly in a verbal dispute over drugs Tuesday night and fired two rounds from a handgun at the victims.

He then left the scene in a dark-colored sedan, which was later found abandoned at 10706 Yorkshire Court and impounded.

Deputies staked out the apartment complex where the vehicle was found. Ultimately a pizza was ordered to where Nieuwkerk was hiding, and he was taken into custody without incident.
