Charge made in heist video

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh police have charged one man in a pizza shop robbery in which surveillance video shows another suspect firing a gun that wounded a clerk.

City police Sgt. Mike Pilyih said Robert Paillett Jr., 23, is charged in the robbery, but is not the suspect who fired the shot. Police believe they know who that man is, but had not confirmed that early Monday.

The video shows the second suspect waiving the gun and gesturing for a clerk to open the cash register drawer at the Domino’s Pizza location on Jan. 11.

At one point, the gunman fires toward the back of the store, where police said an employee suffered a superficial arm wound.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for Paillett, who police believe may be linked to 10 other robberies with the gun suspect.
