NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The murder of a Domino's delivery driver forces the local franchise to change the way it does business in New Orleans. RPM Pizza announced new steps to combat what it calls "rare and violent crime."
The changes come just days after 36-year-old Michael Price was shot and killed during an early Tuesday morning armed robbery in the 6100 block of North Roman Street. The gunman has not yet been found.
Some of the changes RPM will make include only accepting credit cards for delivery service after 10 p.m. RPM Pizza says that means drivers will not carry cash after 10 p.m. in certain locations, including the Franklin Avenue store where Price worked.
The franchise also hopes to become a test market for in-car cameras and GPS tracking devices in New Orleans.
A $10,500 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and indictment of those responsible for Michael Price's murder. A billboard featuring the reward information will be on display. Call Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111 with tips. All callers remain anonymous and do not have to testify to be eligible for the cash reward. Domino's says it will donate 50% of sales from the Franklin Avenue location this week to the Price family.
A bank account at JP Morgan Chase is now open in Price's name for anyone who wishes to make donations to his family.
