Elderly thief sought in N.Y. robbery attempt

A thief who fired a handgun while trying to rob a New York store wasn't just carrying a gun, according to this report:

A geezer carrying an oxygen tank and wielding a cane went on a shooting spree during a botched robbery in a high-end Midtown clothing store, police sources said yesterday.
The bullets started flying at about 9 p.m. last Friday, when the 6-foot-2, 190-pound crook hobbled into Sarar on Madison Avenue near East 46th Street and announced a stickup, sources said.
The bandit, in his 70s, whipped out a handgun and fired a shot at a fleeing customer.
