Ex-DC Mayor Robbed by Kids Paid to Help With Groceries


Marion Barry, former mayor of the District of Columbia, was robbed at gunpoint last night by two youths he had paid a few dollars to help him carry groceries into his Southeast apartment. Barry, who was unharmed, said a gun was pointed at his head and cash and credits cards held in his wallet were taken.

WTOP noted the current City Council member was videotaped by FBI sting police in 1990 smoking crack cocaine during his third term as DC mayor.
