Police have released a second-by-second video of the armed robbery of the Lincoln Convenience store, which took place at around 4:10 AM on Monday, August 8.
As we reported, a group of men entered the smoke shop, located at 2047 Broadway (70-71), and took CBD jars and cash — police now say, “approximately $150 from behind the counter. One of the individuals discharged a firearm, striking a 29-year-old male victim in the left foot. The victim was removed by EMS to St. Luke’s [Mt. Sinai Morningside] Hospital in stable condition. The group of unidentified individuals fled in an unknown direction.”
Here is the video of the robbery:
