Robber fatally shot identified by police

Phil­adelphia po­lice have iden­ti­fied a young Ox­ford Circle man as the armed rob­ber who was shot and killed by a Ta­cony del­icatessen own­er on Feb. 5.

Timothy Casino, 19, of the 1400 block of El­bridge St., al­legedly entered Anna’s Deli, 4400 Prin­ceton Ave., at about 6 p.m., poin­ted a gun at the shop’s co-own­er, Anna Jukic, and de­man­ded money. But when the vic­tim’s hus­band, John, emerged from a private room with a gun of his own, the shots star­ted fly­ing.

John Jukic wounded the in­truder fatally in the chest. Casino died at the scene. The deli own­ers were un­harmed.

John Jukic leg­ally owned his gun and was not charged with a crime. Po­lice have not re­leased fur­ther in­form­a­tion on Casino’s gun. ••
