Gas Station Robbery Fail

A robber attempts to raid a gas station. He pulls and gun and when the clerk says 'no' to giving up cash he pulls the trigger. The gun misfires. He is caught on security cameras, but we don't have a description, which would help find him.

This address 9150 east 21st st is technically in warren twp. This location is right on the edge of two census tracts:

tract 1 - Grown 9% since 2000 - 60% white, 29% black, 6% hispanic. Whites fleeing, blacks increased by 349%.
tract 2 - Dropped 4% since 2000 - 28% white, 57% black, 9% hispanic. Whites fleeing, blacks increased by 54%.

The hispanic pop is growing quickly in these tracts, but their numbers are still small in absolute terms.

Police Car Shot Up

A cop car was shot up.

4300 Thursh Drive - 32% white, 26% black, 39% hispanic. Stable pop since 2000 but composition changing. Whites are fleeing, while blacks stay stable. Hispanic population grew 434%.

Abduction at Gunpoint

This story is rather perplexing. A woman is abducted at gunpoint, raped, forced to stop by ATMs to withdraw money, and the paper gives a crystal clear description of his vehicle and clothes. Nothing describing him. Commenters of the story realize this, and some say how the earlier story described the man as a black male in his 20s. Why did they takle that off as it is critical in finding the man on the street? Hmmmmmm.

WISH TV reports the cops exchanged gunfire with a suspect.
