The 3700 block of Brandywine Street is back to normal this evening after a chaotic morning.
A suspected burglar got a whole lot more than he bargained for when police say he broke into a row house in Mantua.
Police have confirmed the identity of that suspect as the son of convicted abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell.
Three roommates living on Brandywine street in Mantua found themselves cleaning up today after a wild encounter with a man police say wanted to rob them.
A neighbor, Joe Samuel, says “I heard three or four shots.”
Amanda Nguyen adds, “Looked out my window and there was a guy on the ground, bleeding out.”
Police say it started around 7 a.m.
They say 22-year-old Barron Alexander broke into a back, bathroom window.
While taking items, including wallets and cash, police say he woke up one of the three roommates.
The pair then began to struggle.
Captain John Przepiorka of Southwest Detectives says, “The resident screamed for help, a second male, a second resident from that property came to assist him, he did have a firearm.”
Police say Alexander was shot at least twice inside the home. Neighbors then found him on the street bleeding.
