    Clerk wounded in shooting at convenience store on Jefferson Davis Highway

    By Reed Williams

    Published: June 12, 2009

    Richmond police are investigating the shooting of a convenience store clerk tonight on Jefferson Davis highway only about three blocks from where a shopkeeper was killed earlier this week.

    Two gun-wielding males wearing all black entered the Golden Food Market in the 2700 block of Jefferson Davis shortly before 10 p.m., said Richmond Police Capt. Scott Booth.

    An unknown number of rounds were fired and the clerk was shot six times, but police said his injuries were not life-threatening.

    The clerk was taken to VCU Medical Center for treatment.

    Late Tuesday night, Ashraf M. Alatiyat, 30, co-owner of the Come and Go Food Market in the 2400 block of Jefferson Davis, was shot to death during a robbery at the store.

    Police have a grainy security-camera photo of the Come and Go suspect but have not made an arrest in the homicide.

    Standing on the sidewalk tonight outside the Golden store, Felicia Cousins, who lives two blocks from the market, said she was a frequent customer there and also knew Alatiyat.

    "I'm terrified. I'm scared to go into the store. Somebody might run into the store and shoot you," Cousins said.

    Police have not determined whether the two store shootings are connected.

    Does anybody else remember that the owner of the Golden Food Market was killed a few years ago? http://www.mayhem.net/Crime/morgue1.html

All four victims were declared dead in three different crime scenes. Police said the man went into a home in Richmond's Southside before 6 p.m. and shot his 27-year-old girlfriend in a bedroom as children and other relatives watched. The man then ran from the house several blocks to the Golden Food Market, where police said he shot and killed the owner of the store and an employee. According to police, the man then forced four men from the van they were sitting in outside the store and drove to a relative's house, where he shot and killed himself in front of several people.

    JD has been a war zone for years - it ain't getting any better and convenience stores have long been a target for the BGs. Remember when the clerk (owner?) of Fast & Friendly had the shoot out near Dundas (sp) RD.?

    The 7-11 near there (where the UDW hang out looking for work) welcome me. Wonder why?

    Well, that's not exactly true. I was assigned to the district back in 2004 and I was there for a year and a half. I am now back at my old assignment and have been back since the end of February. The call volume has gone way down. The shootings on the pike are not what they were 10 or even 5 years ago. It used to be that I couldn't go through a cycle at work without responding to a shooting or an occasional stabbing; now my shift has not had a shooting or a stabbing since I have been back.

    These dirtbags will get caught. There seems tomethat the mentality of the pikehas changed a bit. People want to do theirthing and mind their business. The pike people arenot going to like these trouble makersbringing all the heatback on the pike.

    BTW I had met Alex,the store owner that had been shot. It seemed to me he was well-liked and there was always people hanging out at his store laughing and carrying on. They never caused any trouble. I work directly beside his store. I relieved the shift on duty that responded to the incident. I am still bothered by the whole thing.

    Appreciate your perspective and input.

    Perhaps I am guilty of compressing my memories of past reports including the recent break in of the pawn/gun shop and many shootings that extend out into Chesterfield.

    BGs do not stop at the city line and no locale is a safe zone.

    Unfortunately this is still not an isolated incident.

    I'd say. There's a video somewhere of a motorcycle cop in Hawaii that was shot.. 13 or 20 times?, with an AK and survived without any paralysis or anything. It does happen but you've got to scratch your head.

    I recall years back seeing an x-ray of a guy's head with six (6) .22 slugs in it. He had passed out drunk in an alleyway, then woke up some hours later with a terrific headache. He went to the ER and they found "the reason(s)". They decided surgery would probably cause more trouble than he already had so they treated him "conservatively" i.e. they watched him. He was released in a few days with no major after effects.

    I'd be afraid of Lead poisoning, but if he has a habit of passing out drunk in alleys that might the least of his worries.

    Jim? Do they still bother you now? I guess they've migrated down to the spinal cord now, right? I've got a couple cysts in my lower spine and a tumor inside a vertebra between my shoulder blades. I guess .22 rounds may act about the same way, right?

    The pike isn't nearly as bad as it used to be. It's been years since I worked the area but then Blackwell was still there, the Brown's were still a big factor in the area and Ruffin Road, Belmont (I think it was Belmont or Belleview, something like that) and all areas of lowlife in between.

    Even Brown Automotive which was owned by Lester Brown, the uncle of the notorious Browns, is gone now. Lester was an interesting fellow but contributed to a lot of the traffic in the area.

    It was entertaining though. There was a young lady of virtue:what: named Big %itty Pam who worked the Highway Motel. In addition to entertaining guests, she sold drugs out of the motel and sent the buyers across the street to a used tire lot to use them. You could park in one of the lots nearby, and watch a virtual parade go through the place.

    Ah...the good old days

    If that wasn't enough fun, there was a bar...excuse me, restaurent called the wagon wheel, or Chuck Wagon, that was good for at least one good fight a night. Then the topless biker bars down the street that changed names every month.

    Guy is shot six times and is doing alright? He needs to buy a lottery ticket.
    A friend of mine hadtwelve .22LR's emptied into his chest at arms length and he didn't/doesn't have any major problem, bullets missed all vital organs.

    Years later this same guy had a piece of steel (>500lbs) fall on his head while working at a casinoconstruction site and he survived, however he was laid up for > a yr.


    Visit Master Shooter's in LV and you might run into him, he's a regular customer.




    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    Not very familiar with Richmond area. Can anyone post a map of this general district so I know where to stay away from when I come down to Richmond.

    Here in NOVA rules are easy - stay the **** out of DC and PG county, MD. If you absolutely have to go into DC, stay away from South East.

    Residents walk for peace following recent crime wave

    By Tara Morgan - bio | email

    RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Some south Richmond residents say they won't stand for crime anymore in their community.There have been at least seven robberies in the last week along the Jeff Davis corridor, one of them deadly.

    Thursday night,residents walked for peace.Residentssay they're fed up! They say they've come too far for criminals to just come in and try to take over the streets again.

    They joined together with police to take a stand against crime. Outside the Golden Food Market where nearly one week ago there was blood shed. Words of prayer.

    "Father Godwe pray lord we pray for the unity of the people," said Pastor Douglas Ross of God Chasers International Church which hosted the prayer vigil and walk.

    He along withresidents and police joined hands and pledged to stand together as one.

    "We'llsend a message to every criminal mind and every predator who thinks they can come into this community and do what they did they'll think first before doing that," said Pastor Ross.

    Their footsteps and voicesechoed through the community that has seen a recent spike in violence.

    Overnight Thursday, gunmen robbed two women outside a Wendy's on Jeff Davis. Just days before a clerk was shot six times at the Golden Food Market, the owner of the Come and Go Food Mart was killed.

    "Idon't think we're scaredI think we're just fed up," said south Richmond resident Ebony Griffin.

    Richmond Police Chief Bryan Norwood reassured residents they're not going through this alone and that his department is doing everything it can to turn this community around.

    "Thereason why we're here today is because we've been here and we're going to be here we're going to walk with you and continue this fight," said Chief Norwood.

    Not exactly correct. You can stop off at the Fredericksburg Rest Area on I-95S to get yourimmunizations and visa for a visit to South Richmond. There are several 7-11s along Rt 1 for those that avoid the interstates that also provide the service - look for the LOTTO signs (it's "code" for where to get them).

    Be aware that the immunizations do not protect you from the things you might catch in Hanover County, especially from those tomatoes.

    The Jeff Davis corridor is not the whole of South Richmond. We have Midlothian Turnpike, Hull Street, Semmes Avenue, Forest Hill Ave, Jhanke Rd & Buford Rd,Belt Boulevard & Commerce Road just to name a few other routes that will take you to tourist and historical places of interest (mostly robberies & killings, but a few kidnappings and locales of political shennanigans as well).

    Grapeshot & I will host guided tours of the various homes of the stars of South Richmond. I offer a guided late-night tour of Jeff Davis on Friday, Saturday & Sunday. Both are, of course, BYOB (Bring Your Own Bullets).

    stay safe.

    Undocumented tourists must be escorted.

    Please do not disturb the LE ladies in the performance of their duties.

    It is not recommended that you entertain eating in an establishment that requires you to push #2 for English.

    Have a wonderful day and thank you for calling.
