NEW CASTLE, PA — A father in Pennsylvania has been charged with the murder of his daughter’s 17-year-old boyfriend because he suspected that the teen was a drug dealer, according to police.

Darren Jevcak was working his shift at Scustie's Super Pizza in New Castle on Friday when Michael D’Biagio allegedly shot him multiple times, according to Fox News.

D’Biagio, 41, was arrested at the scene. He has been charged with homicide and aggravated assault in connection with the shooting.

After shooting the teen several times, D'Biagio fired another shot into his victim's head so that he could put him "out of his misery," New Castle Police Chief Robert A. Salem told USA Today.

D’Biagio drove to the pizza shop after confronting his daughter on the phone about using cocaine with Jevcak, according to a criminal complaint obtained by the New Castle News.

Sergeant Sheila Panella said, according to the document: “D’Biagio said the victim got D’Biagio’s daughter hooked on cocaine and so this is what drug dealers got.”

But Chief Salem told USA Today that this narrative is false. "The victim was the shooter's daughter's boyfriend, and the father found out that his daughter and her boyfriend smoked weed together at a party," he said. Salem also stated that Jevcak was a “good kid,” KDKA-TV reports.

"I cannot even put my thoughts/emotions into words right now. My son did not deserve this. All he did was love a girl who had a psychotic father," Jevcak's mother, Ashley Altemus, wrote on Facebook. "This man plotted to ambush my child at his job and kill him."
