It’s official: I have to take my gun everywhere in this town now.
PHILADELPHIA ― Police are searching for a gunman who opened fire in Philadelphia department store Tuesday morning.
Authorities said a victim was shot inside the stock room of a K-Mart on the 8800 block of Frankford Avenue in Torresdale at about 9:30 a.m.
This was my old sector in my last patrol district. It is also within two miles of my home.
The victim, a 35-year-old male, was apparently trying to intervene during a domestic dispute when he was shot multiple times. He was rushed to Frankford-Torresdale with wounds to his head, hand and chest.
Police are searching nearby residential areas and businesses in hopes of locating the gunman, identified as 30-year-old Anthony Birch. Early reports described the suspect as being approximately 5’11″ tall, last seen wearing a black hat and black hoodie.
No arrests have been made. The incident remains under investigation. (H/T – CBS3)
Shot in the head, hand, and chest? If this guy makes it, it will be a Christmas miracle. As for Birch, let’s hope he is hunted down like a dog.
