SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - Police in Savannah say a 13-year-old girl has been arrested in the shooting and robbery of a pizza delivery driver.

Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police spokesman Sonny Cohrs said in a statement Tuesday that the teen is charged as an adult with armed robbery and aggravated assault in the shooting.

Authorities say a 20-year-old man was delivering food Sunday night and was approached by an armed suspect who demanded his money. Police say the man complied and was shot after the suspect made a second demand. Police say the driver’s injuries were not life threatening.

Cohrs says the girl is being held in a regional youth detention center and the shooting remains under investigation.
