Butcher blast

The wife of the owner of a 15th Avenue butcher shop was shot in a robbery on Dec. 18.

Police said that the woman was putting money in the register at Romeo Brothers Meats and Foods near 78th Street at 4:30 pm when the unidentified suspect burst in and started blasting away.

Several shots hit the woman, allowing the thief to steal an undisclosed amount of cash from the register as his victim writhed in pain on the floor.

He fled, but a few minutes later, the owner of the store returned, finding his wounded wife.

Police said that the woman was rushed to Lutheran Medical Center where she was listed in stable condition.
