The gunman apparently wanted Ricardo Rosario dead, police said, and nothing was going to stop him. So when Rosario, 24, tried to elude the gunfire yesterday by jumping into a passing delivery truck at a Kensington intersection, the gunman was undeterred. He followed Rosario into the truck, shot the stunned driver, then let go a fusillade on Rosario, who was trying to hide in the back. Rosario, of the 200 block of East Ontario Street, died a short while later. His body, police said, bore 13 bullet holes.

A Daily News deliveryman allegedly sent his 11-year-old son to buy a packet of drugs for him yesterday, unaware that a police video camera was trained on them. Father and son were among 19 alleged drug buyers and four dealers picked up yesterday around A and Somerset streets in Kensington as part of Operation Fishnet, an ongoing roundup conducted by the police narcotics strike force. The arrests resulted in the confiscation of 12 customers' vehicles and one dealer's car, police said.

A 22-year-old Boyertown man died yesterday after his pickup truck crossed over the grass median into the westbound lanes of Route 422 before dawn and collided head-on with a Hostess cake delivery truck.

McKinney was pronounced dead at 1:15 p.m. at Allegheny University Hospitals/Hahnemann after suffering internal, head and leg injuries, said Trooper Reynold Steptoe of the Belmont state police barracks in Philadelphia, which covers Route 422 from Route 202 to Royersford.

The Westville Zoning Board has closed the books on a three-year legal tussle with developer Paul Bennett of Cherry Hill by granting him a variance allowing for only half of the parking spaces normally required for a Wawa convenience store. The store, planned for Broadway and Olive Street, will have 15 parking spaces instead of the 30 required for the site by the borough's zoning ordinance. The variance is in accordance with a state appeals court ruling in March that granted an exemption allowing for 15 parking spaces.

WHO'S AT FAULT for the problems that have plagued the Goldtex development? Depends on whom you ask. Several of the union men who sometimes stand around the work site, at 12th and Wood streets, said the Goldtex construction workers and security employees have tried to intimidate them. "They come right up to us and put a camera in our faces, taking pictures of us," said one union worker who asked not to be identified. On April 20, the day the Pestronks got their temporary injunction to keep the protesters away, the developers said union members flattened the tires of a truck delivering steel to the building and broke a windshield.

"STARBUCK" is a big, fat French-Canadian hug of a movie, a sperm-donations-gone-wrong farce that manages the occasional belly laugh, but also offers moving takes on parenthood, family and what it means to grow up. David Wozniak (Patrick Huard) makes one wonder what the French word for "galoot" is. He's the black sheep in his Montreal family, a thirty-something slacker who can't do the easiest job in the family's butcher shop right - driving the delivery truck. He's forever taking the truck for personal errands, forgetting to do this or that and then lying the moment he's found out. He's in hock to loan sharks.

THE DRIVER OF a bread truck that sat in a Southwest Philly Wawa parking lot for nearly 40 minutes wasn't delivering bread - but police say he had dough in mind. Police on Monday arrested Keith Jones, 55, of Kingsessing, on charges that he stole 513 gallons of diesel gas worth about $2,000 from the Wawa at Bartram and Island avenues Feb. 4. Jones, operating a Stroehmann bread delivery truck he'd purchased at auction about two weeks earlier, siphoned the gas from a station ground pump into a large storage tank, police said.

It's nearly midnight on Norwood Road, pitch black and dead quiet, when Daryl Mast brakes his truck and starts unloading product. An unmarked police cruiser pulls up behind us. "Excuse me, what are you doing?" asks the officer from Uwchlan Township. "I'm delivering milk," says Mast pleasantly. He is 38, denim-clad and bespectacled, with a miner's lamp clipped to the brim of his ball cap. In his right hand is a blue plastic crate that cradles a half-gallon bottle of low-fat.

Sheraz Khan kept his head bowed, occasionally wiping tears, as he was sentenced Friday to serve seven years in prison for causing the 2008 deaths of three people while recklessly driving a tractor-trailer on I-295 in Cherry Hill. Khan, 42, of West Babylon, N.Y., will be eligible for parole in six years. He said little during the hearing in a crowded courtroom in Camden, where relatives of the victims - who included a CIA agent on vacation - cried as they described their losses.

Bruce McAllister has driven his United Parcel Service truck up the long gravel driveway and left the package at the door. Now he's in a fix. Ahead is a steep grade leading to a flat area where he can turn around. But the worn tread on his front tires is no match for the ice and snow, and the dual rear wheels are slipping as well. Each time he tries to move forward, the truck makes minimal progress, then slides backward. Backing up is no easy option, either. No more than a yard behind his rear bumper is a gleaming SUV. "This makes things interesting," McAllister understates.

Philabundance, the area's largest hunger-relief agency, will soon cut off milk to 18 after-school and day-care agencies serving 1,045 children. In many cases, it is the only milk the children ever drink. Philabundance blames the tough economy and a drop in food donations of as much as 20 percent over the last year for the cutoff, which is expected to save the nonprofit $200,000 annually. "I was shocked to hear this," said Leola Highsmith, director of Grace Community Christian Center's after-school program in Germantown.

A doughnut deliveryman who disappeared last week, leaving his idling truck on the Schuylkill Expressway, apparently died accidentally after climbing out of the vehicle and falling 50 feet into the river, police said. Yesterday morning, a Philadelphia police marine unit recovered the body of James Polisano, 43, of Upper Darby, from the Schuylkill. "The working theory right now is that he climbed out the window attempting to step on the cement barrier and missed or slipped and fell in the water," said Lt. John Walker of the Southwest Detectives Special Investigations.
