Joshua Frazier arrested: Man charged after argument leads to shooting at Philadelphia Wawa on Frankford Avenue

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — Philadelphia prosecutors have announced charges against a man allegedly involved in a nonfatal shooting of a wawa last week.

It happened around 4:15 a.m. Friday at a store on the 9100 block of Frankford Avenue near Academy Road in the Torresdale neighborhood.

Authorities say Joshua Frazier, 23, was involved in a verbal altercation with a 34-year-old victim at the store.

The couple went to the back doors to exit the store when at least two shots were fired.

When Frazier left the store with a female companion, authorities said he shot the victim in the abdomen.

Frazier and the woman then fled the scene on a motorcycle, authorities said.

The victim was taken to Jefferson Torresdale Hospital in stable condition.

Frazier faces multiple charges including aggravated assault, minor assault and gun possession.

The DA’s office says Frazier is barred from buying or owning firearms and he was also wanted in connection with a burglary in New Jersey.

Just last month, Wawa announced that two Center City locations would be permanently closed for safety reasons.

Nine other Wawas in Northeast Philadelphia and Bucks County were closed overnight after multiple armed robberies.

“Maybe there could be more security guards where the doors go in and out, that could be a help right there,” said customer Christine Miller.

Police say the victim was carrying a handgun with a permit, but they believe he did not use it.
