Tacoma police said an armed man held up a 7­/11 convenience store early this morning.

The robber entered the store at 801 S. 56th St. about 2:30 a.m., flashed a handgun and demanded money. He fled with an undisclosed amount of cash and a 7/11 shopping bag.

A K-9 unit was called out to track the suspect, who is still at large.

  1. South End. Not South Tacoma.

  2. tacomajoe says:

    South Tacoma … NOT!

  3. Regfool2 says:

    Okay, Jake and Tacomajoe. I’m having a stupid moment due to lack of caffeine. This address is NOT in the Tacoma city limits?

  4. itwasntmethistime says:

    What’s the difference between the South End and South Tacoma? Is there a boundary I haven’t heard of?

  5. babytigers says:

    56th and Yakima is in the city limits, but why is that relevant???

  6. tacomajoe says:

    You wankers who say there is no difference between South End and South Tacoma must think there is no difference between Virginia and West Virginia.

  7. itwasntmethistime says:

    Okay, so the answer is yes, there is a boundary I didn’t know about. Thanks for the map.

    South Tacoma refers to an area known to Tacoma natives as the original South Tacoma. It is known now as the South Tacoma business district. It exists on South Tacoma Way which is also Hwy. 99, the former main North-South connection prior to I-5. I would say it is comprised of the area between I-5 and Orchard street/38th street and 84th street on today’s maps.

    You people are something else. My son was the clerk who had a gun pointed at him, who was told he would be killed if there wasn’t enough money in the till and that they would come back and kill him if it wasn’t enough and the only thing that concerns you is if it was the south end or south Tacoma. Glad you guys have so much to worry about. It really makes a huge difference as to where the store was located, really??
