Robbery and Shooting at my LGS and Range
#1
No news story yet, but a friend of mine (Philly cop) just told me there was a shooting and robbery at the Delaware Valley Sports Center gun shop and range on the border of Philly and Montgomery County. I'll post a story once I find one. This is actually in one of the nicest areas of Philly, and is a 10 second drive from Huntingdon Valley, which is a very affluent area.

Quote:Suspects at large after gun range robbery, shooting

Two suspects are still at large after authorities say they robbed two men outside of a gun range in Northeast Philadelphia, shooting one of them.

It happened around 8:30 Thursday night on the 100 block of Geiger Road.

Police say a man and a woman approached the two men, ages 67 and 68, while they were in the parking lot.

The couple robbed the men of seven guns and afterward police say the male suspect shot of the victims.

The victim who was shot was taken to Aria-Torresdale Hospital in critical condition.

Police are looking for a man and a Hispanic female who fled the scene in a newer model black car with heavily tinted windows.

Both suspects are considered armed and extremely dangerous.

Officers stopped a car that they say fits he general description of the fleeing vehicle along Schuylkill Avenue.

Investigators are waiting to interview a witness in order to determine whether the occupants of that vehicle were the people involved.

No word yet on any arrests.

Authorities are working to review surveillance video from the parking lot as well as neighboring businesses.

Police sources said a similar armed robbery, also perpetrated by a man and a woman, happened Wednesday night outside the Gun Range (formerly Colosimo's) on Spring Garden Street near 9th. Detectives are investigating whether that robbery, during which a source said two .22-caliber handguns were taken, and Thursday's may be related.

Police said surveillance video of both robberies is being reviewed by investigators.

Cops late Thursday were hunting for the duo, who were believed to have fled the scene with at least nine handguns in their possession.

The news stories that I read conveniently left out the race and really any descriptions other than male and female in late model car with tinted windows... not helpful at all.

Hispanic male, Hispanic female, black (or dark) colored car w/ tints. In all seriousness that description matches a lot of people in Philly.

If this happened at The Gun Range the night before, you would have thought Philly detectives might have alerted the gun shops in the area...at least in Philly.Shrug

Also it looks like the gun shops themselves weren't robbed, but their customers were in the parking lot. I know the staff in DVSC carries, and they use two sets of doors that require you to be "buzzed in" twice to enter the shop.

Thanks for the clarification. I hadn't heard the race.
