According to the local CBS affiliate in Philadelphia, 22-year-old Barron Alexander “got a whole lot more than he bargained for when police say he broke into a row house…” through a bathroom window allegedly to rob the residence.
While “taking items, including wallets and cash, police say he woke up one of the three roommates.” During a struggle with the first roommate, a second roommate entered the room and shot the man, who was later confirmed to be the son of serial killer Kermit Gosnell.
He is currently in critical, but stable condition.
The legal owner of the firearm shot Alexander, who changed his name from Gosnell, in self defense, according to a friend.
