I know the city says crime is dropping. But it sure feels like there’s been a surge in old-style business armed robberies — convenience stores and such.

Don’t tell Frederick Cohns about a drop in crime. A Taco Bell employee, he was shot in the stomach about 9:10 p.m. last night when a masked man robbed the restaurant in the 6200 block of Col. Glenn. Police say he’s in critical, but stable condition today.
