You don’t have to be a genius to realize that Philly is a cesspool. Few people are more aware of the crime rate in this town than I am. That being said, my neighborhood is a pretty good one.
Of course, we have our share of incidents, and this one concerned me – because it happened a block from my kids’ school.
Police exchanged gunfire early Sunday morning with a man robbing a 7-11 store in the 9300 block of Bustleton Avenue in Northeast Philadelphia, police said. There were no injuries. The suspect fled and has not been captured, but police found the gun used in the 2:18 a.m. shooting that involved two police officers.
Police are investigating whether recent gunpoint robberies at the Lukoil gas station at 12001 Roosevelt Blvd. and a Wawa at Philmont Avenue and Byberry Road are connected to the 7-Eleven robbery.
A normal parent would be worried. Not me, because I’ll be outfitting my boys .
