No matter where you are, blacks will do something bad to you.
The man who allegedly shot and killed two people in a Philadelphia convenience store robbery on Saturday was out of prison on early release following a 2012 attempted armed robbery conviction in Hinds County.
Megan Staats, a cashier at the CEFCO convenience store on Mississippi 16 west, and Jeremy Apperson, a man in the parking lot who exchanged gunfire with the suspect, were shot dead while another man drove himself to the hospital, according to Philadelphia police.
In a Facebook post on Saturday night, Apperson’s wife Samantha wrote that their girls had gone to a birthday party and that she and Jeremy and their son went for drinks and gasoline at the convenience store.
“While Jeremy was pumping gas a man walked up to my driver window and pointed a handgun at my face,” she wrote.
“Jeremy saw and pulled his concealed pistol hitting the man once. The man fired an array of bullets hitting Jeremy and the shots were fatal.”
Apperson was a transport truck driver for Philadelphia-based Prince Oil Co., Inc.
The suspect, Robert Leon Jackson, 30, of 224 Manship St., Jackson, is in custody, police said.
