Willie Perkins: St. Louis Man Shot Point-Blank in Head During Armed Robbery

A 63-year-old man is dead and his 64-year-old friend recovering today after both were injured during a brazen armed robbery last night in the the 2900 block of North Jefferson (below).

St. Louis police report that a 64-year-old man was seated inside his vehicle talking to 63-year-old Willie Perkins and another man when two unknown suspects approached with guns around 9:23 p.m. One of the suspects fired his gun into the car, shattering the window of the vehicle. The other suspect then pointed his weapon through the window at the driver. At that point the driver grabbed the suspect's arm and sped off toward the police department's Central Station, wrestling the gun away in the process.

Police say the robbers then turned their attention to Perkins, who tried to flee on foot but was stopped. According to police, the robbers demanded that Perkins give them money. After he did so, one of the robbers allegedly shot Perkins once in the head. The suspects then fled the scene in an unidentified vehicle.

Perkins was pronounced dead on the scene. His friend in the car was taken to the hospital with a laceration to the abdomen after he arrived at the police department's Central Patrol Station at 919 Jefferson. Police say they recovered one of the suspects' guns inside the man's vehicle. No word on what happened to the third man who was talking to Perkins and the other victim when the robbers approached.

Perkins was the city's 99th homicide of the year.

Perkins was in the wrong place at the wrong time. He did not deserve to die. He was not a criminal. RIP Willie.

When the negro perps behind this are captured (due to racism), the liberals will put together a candle lite vigil for them until they're released from custody but the candle lite vigil will be interupted by gunfire and the negros and lberals in attendance will again blame Y T for the gunfire.
