The Duane Reade that Lady Gaga allegedly frequents for Blockbuster movies was a crime scene Friday night. At roughly 11 pm, two armed men described as in their forties, entered the corner pharmacy at 100 Delancey Street (Ludlow) and demanded money from the cashier at gunpoint.

When the brave 21-year-old employee refused to relinquish any funds, police say one of the bandits told the other, “shoot her.” The suspect fired a shot, but missed. They subsequently fled the scene and are now wanted for attempted armed robbery.
