According to Metro Police, the armed robbery that caused Morgan Park Community Center to be locked down last night actually occurred in Germantown across 8th Av. from Kroger. The suspect--a 19-20-year-old black male, 5'9", 150 lbs., wearing a hoodie with yellow writing on it--committed the robbery with a blue steel handgun in the lot of the 8th Avenue Market. He then fled into the Cheatham Place Public Housing Development to the north of Kroger. That is where K-9's lost his scent. Police say that no one at the Morgan Park Community Center was ever in any danger.
