It seems rare that a criminal already incarcerated for serious crimes is charged again while sitting in jail. This is exactly what happened to “Pistol,” “P-Gun,” Parysh Wood, 21, of New Brunswick, New Jersey. His nicknames come from an alleged gang affiliation. Wood has been sitting in jail for the numerous crimes of robbery, some of which he paired with Justina Hampton, 19, to commit. Robbing pizza delivery drivers seems to be their modus operandi. It was told to investigators that females from gangs would call an order pizzas and when the driver tried to deliver the food the male members would follow the driver outside and demand money and the pizzas while threatening them with a gun. This was what Wood was in jail for when the New Brunswick Police Department linked him to another robbery and shooting.
On November 30, 2012, Wood robbed a delivery driver at gunpoint at the apartment complex at Quincy Complex. Investigators reported that this area has been at the center of several gun related violence including robbery and domestic violence. The driver approached an apartment with a delivery but was told by certain females that no such order had been placed. While he returned to his vehicle three gang members waited with a gun. One of the men pointed the gun at the driver’s head and demanded pizza and cash. While the driver complied, he was shot and injured. An anonymous person is said to have transported the victim to the hospital, some say he was with the gunman at the time of the shooting.
Parysh was linked to the shooting when police went through cell phone records. After this new charge, he was held in the jail on $100.00. The other men had fled the crime scene in what witnesses say was an old minivan. Justina Hampton was also arrested for non-related robbery charges.
