The arrest mugshot of the pizza delivery driver for Giuseppe’s Pizzeria has been released by the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office.

William James Irving Carrodus, 56, was charged Friday with first degree murder, second degree murder and shooting into an occupied dwelling.

Investigators say Carrodus went to the restaurant, located at 935 Sebastian Blvd., with an AK47 rifle because he was upset with the manager.

While at the pizza restaurant, he fired several rounds towards the building before entering the business and then upon entering the restaurant, fired several more rounds in the direction of other employees, fatally striking 34-year-old Frank Strahorn of Sebastian.

After exiting the building, Carrodus shot the manager’s unoccupied vehicle several times. He then placed the AK47 on the ground and waited for police.

Sebastian police spokesperson Lt. Timothy Wood told Sebastian Daily that the Strahorn was shot while helping others escape the restaurant. Strahorn died at the hospital. No one else was injured.
