I thought this was a rather disturbing report from MPD:
The 2nd District Detectives office is seeking your assistance if you may have any information to assist in identifying two individuals wanted in connection with this series of robberies which appear to be similar in nature. The suspects in these offenses were armed with handguns. In one of the incidents, a victim was shot after refusing to surrender his property.
In all four of the robberies the suspects were described as follows: suspect one is described as a black male, between 5-feet-10 inches to 6-feet-tall, stocky-chubby build, between the ages of 25 to 30 years of age, dreads or braided hair style, dark complexion, wearing a white or light colored coat and dark pants. Suspect two is described as a black male, 5-feet-7 inches to 5-feet-9 inches tall, medium-average build, 25 to 30 years of age, unknown hair style, dark complexion, wearing dark clothing. During one of the robberies a third suspect, described as a black male with medium complexion, may have been involved.
