    Gunman Holds Up Stockbridge Grocery Store

    STOCKBRIDGE, Ga. -- The banks were closed so apparently a gunman turned to a supermarket for some quick cash.

    The suspect held up the ALDI Food Mart at 5420 N. Henry Blvd. in Henry County on Saturday night around 9:35.

    Police said the thief pulled a silver revolver and robbed the store of an undisclosed amount of cash.

    He wore a black T-shirt, black pants, and a skull cap, according to witnesses.

    They told police the suspect is 18-22 years old, weighs 140-150 and stands 5'6" to 5'8".

    He escaped on foot.

    A security camera caught the suspect walking into the store.

    Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to contact Detective Mike Ireland at 770-288-8260 or after hours at 770-957-9121.

    Well, the omission indicates to me that he was Black.

    Well everything else he had on was black... so I assume he was black. Maybe that is how they missed his color... since he had all black on.

    SEE, now that's being racist.
    you assumed he was black. why can't the media just tell us?

    i'm just picking at ya'll but, you can bet if he was white they
    would have said so.

    it is ridiculous i've seen on the news where they will go so far as to describe a black subject with black hair and brown eyes but not mention the skin color.

    racist... like arresting michael vick for a little recreational dog scuffling.

    No, it's not. It's assuming the person talking to the media fears being called racist and left out the suspect's race.
