On Saturday evening, March 2, an armed man and woman attempted to rob a grocery store in the historic town of York, Pa., about 100 miles west of Philadelphia. According to a report by WHTM ABC 27, the duo left with more than they were seeking.
The man and woman walked into the La Familia Grocery, located at 350 East Prospect Street, pulled out a handgun and demanded money. The two then took off with an undisclosed amount of money, but not before the owner of the store pulled out his own gun and starting shooting at them.
Although they both initially got away, the woman was hit by at least one bullet and was later found suffering from a gunshot wound. The police took the woman to a local hospital where her condition is currently not known.
The investigation is ongoing, as authorities have yet to locate the male suspect.
Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call city police at (717) 846-1234, or the city's anonymous crime tip line, 849-2204. Or text a tip to YORKTIPS at 847411.
With NBC’s weeklong series “investigating” “gun violence” in America, which exploits deaths that occurred over a weekend in January in an attempt to gain acceptance for gun control, the Little Rock Gun Rights Examiner has started its own series in an effort to help show that guns not only take lives, they very often save them. The series will highlight 30 days of guns saving lives. This is story number 21.
