Update: 12:25 p.m.: The Bucks County DA’s Office announced the public’s input has helped to identify the witness. To preserve the individual’s privacy, the person’s images have been removed.
Detectives handling the investigation into a shooting involving police earlier this month at a 7-Eleven in Langhorne Borough are asking for the public’s help to identify at witness at the scene.
Two men were allegedly robbing the 7-Eleven on N. Pine Street the evening of Jun. 6. Then, an officer tasked with tailing the suspects’ vehicle intervened. Police say when one suspect drew his knife and acted aggressively, the officer opened fire. The individual, identified as Charles Emrich Jr., sustained serious injuries from a gunshot, but survived.
Now, for the sake of thoroughness, the Bucks County District Attorney’s Office has released the witness’s image from security footage the night of the shooting.
The man was in the store before and during the robbery, but escaped before law enforcement could interview him. Police say the man left in small-to-midsize gray four-door car.
“Detectives are looking to speak with all eyewitnesses to the incident and believe this individual may have information relevant to the ongoing investigation,” the press release said. “He is being sought only as a witness, and not a criminal suspect.”
Anyone who recognizes the individual, or is the person in the photo, should reach out to Bucks County Detectives Timothy Campbell or Michael Walp at 215-348-6354. If there is no answer, callers should leave a message with their contact info.
