43-year-old Joseph Hodgin is dead after being shot to death by police in Allentown. Investigators say Hodgin robbed the Whitehall Pharmacy Sunday morning, shot an employee there and then led police on a chase into Allentown. Hodgin then drove his pickup truck into a pair of police cruisers at 19th and Green streets. Police say that's when Hodgin then pulled a gun and they shot him. This witness describes what he saw. "I heard the big hit when they crashed and when I came over here they were pulling the body out. He didn't look alive," the witness said. The pharmacy worker remains hospitalized. One police officer was injured when Hodgin slammed his truck into the officer's cruiser. The Lehigh County DA's office is investigating.
