    I recognize the gun! It’s the same one that was used in the last seven shootings illustrated on this website. Catch that guy, you solve a ton of crimes!

      Do either of you who commented. Do you really think that’s the actual gun used in the crime(s)?

      Can you say “stock photo” ? Very funny!

        This is the problem with serious people. No ability to read sarcasm.

      I think the same gun was used in 18 bank holdup in Texas and 4 muggings in Washington State and to car thefts in Georgia

    That Glock 19 sure gets around? How do we not know it wasnt a wheel gun or a shot gun or a S&w Raven arms?? I am amazed….

    With all the hoodlums hanging around that place, I’m not surprised. Probably a drug deal gone bad.

      That market is run by great folks, but is absolutely surrounded by Section 8 government housing. I’m very surprised they aren’t robbed/have “incidents” more often. That housing project is a toilet in an otherwise wonderful neighborhood.
