Home invasion and shooting on Police Street

Story PictureA mother and son say they have been left traumatized by an armed robbery late Thursday night. At around nine, two brazen thieves walked into the home of Pedrina White on Police Street Extension and used her youngest child, Frank Trapp, as the bait to rob the woman of three hundred dollars. The robbers also pistol-whipped White and shot Trapp in the right leg. They then escaped and allegedly got into two getaway vehicles and fled the scene. White was too scared to speak on camera but daughter Michel Johnson relayed what happened.
