Man shot inside grocery store

A middle-aged man was shot inside a corner store in Hunting Park during a robbery Thursday night, police said.

The store owner’s 51-year-old brother, Marcelino Rosario, was shot once in the back after two men with guns barged into Gomez’ Mini Mart on 8th Street at Lycoming at 8:10 p.m. He was rushed to Temple University Hospital where he was listed in stable condition.

Rosario, who only speaks Spanish, was sitting in a chair watching television when the thieves entered the store with their guns drawn, police said. Rosario got up from the chair and tried to run behind the counter when he was shot. The thieves got away with $100.
