Priori’s Deli murder: Authorities say bloodied sneakers led to teenage suspect

EWING TWP., NJ (WPVI) — A teenager has been accused of shooting and killing two brothers at a deli in Mercer County, New Jersey.

Mercer County prosecutors say the 17-year-old is charged with first-degree murder and other felonies.

Prosecutors did not name the teenager.

Investigators say the teenager tried to rob 54-year-old Oscar Palacios and his 57-year-old brother when they opened Priori’s Deli on June 6.

Police say a fight ensued in which Palacios was shot in the chest and killed.

His brother was injured but survived.

The teenager was taken into custody on June 21 on an independent warrant. Prosecutors say it was then that detectives noticed the teen was wearing the same sneakers seen on surveillance video.

Detectives also reportedly discovered dried blood on the teenager’s sneakers. That blood was later found to be a match for the 57-year-old victim, prosecutors said.

The suspect faces numerous charges including first-degree murder.
