Shop owner Sam said the man placed his order before leaving the store and never returning to collect it.

Sam said while the man bought pizzas from his store a lot, he would not consider him a regular customer. 

Security vision of the victim ordering the meal was passed on to police, who placed Hampden Street on lockdown following the shooting.

The location of the shooter was unknown and police did not reveal whether the gunman was still on the run. 

A shocked bystander said there ‘hasn’t been a shooting here in months’. 

Nearby worker Jacob Thomas said, ‘You wouldn’t think of anything like that happening around here.’
