NORTH CHANNEL – Residents of this community are highly alarmed at the number of robberies and shooting fatalities that have occurred within the last month, on a stretch of Uvalde that is only a few blocks long.

The death of a woman on Tuesday whose auto was carjacked by a robbery suspect, is only the latest in this string of bizarre and dangerous crimes. She was dragged to her death as the robber attempted to drive her car to escape.

A week ago, another woman, now identified as Martha Medina, was run over by a purse snatching robber at the McDonald’s only a few blocks from the current crime scene.

And a month before, again a few blocks along Uvalde from the other fatalities, a security guard argued with a Walgreen’s customer, and ended up shooting him to death.

He led the defense with 13 tackles and made several critical stops, but none as important at his tackle to stop the Marlins 2 point-conversion attempt at the end of the game with seconds left which gave GP their 1 point victory (42-41).
