Robbery at Apple Store in Clarendon

Neighborhood residents were alerted to a local crime by the sound of a circling police helicopter. Local news stations are reporting that at 10:30am this morning the Apple Store on 2800 Clarendon Blvd shopping center was robbed at gunpoint and a female was shot.

The female victim survived and was taken to a local hospital. No other injuries were reported. AppleInsider press release here for more info.

The shopping center is crowded with heavy Arlington County police and news crew presence currently.

This is a strange and out of place occurrence in such a generally safe and quiet area. Add to the strangeness that the robbery occurred in broad daylight, on a holiday, and the shooter was also described as wearing a fake beard???
