Surveillance videos: Philadelphia Police seeking more gun suspects


The Gun Crisis Reporting Project

PHILADELPHIA PA (January 22, 2014)--The Philadelphia Police department has posted more than a dozen new surveillance videos, seeking the public’s assistance to identify suspects wanted in connection with recent gun crimes:

This suspect robbed a 7-11 in Juniata Park, according to police:

On January 4, 2014, 8:10 pm, an employee of a 7-11 store located at 3967 Kensington Avenue was working behind the counter when an unknown male entered the store and approached the counter area. While at the counter, the suspect pointed a handgun at the employee demanding money. After the employee gave the suspect an unknown amount of cash from the register the suspect fled the store in an unknown direction.

If you see this suspect do not approach him, contact 911 immediately. To submit a tip via telephone, dial 215.686.TIPS (8477) or text a tip to PPD TIP or 773847.
