    A man carrying a sawed-off shotgun robbed a group of people as they left a bar early Wednesday.

    Investigators say the suspect was waiting for the two employees and two customers after they closed up Loco Pez on the 2400 block of Norris Street in Philadelphia’s Fishtown neighborhood.

    The suspect forced the victims back into the bar where he stole $70 from them before taking another $1,000 from inside the business.

    The man then fled the scene.

    No one was hurt.

    Philadelphia Police didn’t reveal any information about the suspect.

    This was one of a string of violent incidents in the city overnight including a home invasion in Southwest Philly and a police standoff in Feltonville.
