NBC 10 reports that Barron Alexander — the 22-year-old son of infamous abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell — was shot several times early Wednesday morning while attempting to burglarize the home of undergrads in West Philly. Alexander is now “fighting for his life” at an area hospital.
Investigators say Alexander broke into the home while the three male residents were home. According to police, he broke into the home three times, stealing cash and electronics — including an X-Box and a laptop.
Police Capt. John Przepiorka said Alexander went through a rear bathroom window during the third break-in, causing two of the residents to wake up. A second roommate then shot Alexander multiple times, said Przepiorka.
Gosnell, of course, “is serving a life sentence without the possibility for parole after a jury found him guilty of killing three babies born alive at his West Philadelphia abortion clinic.” Alexander had legally dropped his father’s last name.
