Police search for suspect in string of violent armed robberies

- Police are searching for at least one suspect after a string of violent armed robberies. 

Chaos unleashed along with a silver gun inside the Double R Deli in Philadelphia's Feltonville section this past weekend. 
 
Police say the masked suspect held up a 63-year-old store clerk, who neighbors say is known as "Eric."
 
He's even shot in the right hip during the heist. 
 
In surveillance video released by police, you can see the crook waving the gun over his seriously injured victim while appearing to reach for cash.
 
Police say he also grabs lottery tickets before making a break for it. 
 
A key clue? The shooter's royal blue shoes. 
 
"Eric" the victim hospitalized in stable condition. 
 
An armed man then enters the  San Rafael market a few blocks away on Gransback the next night, December 11th. He's pictured wearing a mask. He orders store employees to the floor. 
 
Police say one shot was fired at a 56-year-old man, hitting him in the leg. 
 
The suspect demands money from the register and runs off. The big clue police motive here? A shiny silver colored hoodie. A similar gun too. 
 
Now, neighbors are saying they need more protection.
