    Lots of police cars, with sirens blazing, just flew past heading south on 35th! Thanks for keeping us in the loop!

      Shortly after the robbery call, there was a police and fire response for what was described by dispatch as a possible overdose, just a few blocks away, so that might be what you heard.

    Live near that 7-11. Heard a single gunshot around 11:55p.

      That would have been long after the robber had come and gone.

        I heard the gun shot as well, just got out of my truck after coming home in High Point, and it came from same direction as all the sirens I heard (towards the south in the direction of 7/11. One shot, nothing else. The time was 11:50 or so, I know cuz I looked at my phone after a cpl mins and it was 1153, I found this story which was posted at 1142. So the shot was def at least several mins after the robbery

          Longer than that – took me a while to confirm it was the 7-11; the initial dispatch for the robbery was ~11:20 pm.

            I heard the same shot at that time, sounded close to our location near California and Thistle

    I just stopped by the 7-11 to see how they’re doing. They seem to be doing alright now, but I imagine it was a pretty stressful situation while they were being held up at gun point! They described the armed robber, what he was wearing (listed above), and that he was sporting a pair of bright red trainers. That detail wasn’t listed in the above post, so I thought it might be useful to add that detail here. The thief looked to be younger than 35 years old, and had a slender physique. The employees at the gas station have a video of the perpetrator, but I’m not sure if it’s been posted anywhere. I imagine it would be helpful for other convenience store employees to have a better idea of who this person is, so they can call 9-11 as soon as they see him approaching the doors of their businesses. This way, SPD might actually be able to arrive in time to catch the guy!

Sorry, comment time is over.
