A gun-toting, would-be robber apparently picked the wrong victim earlier this week on a Philadelphia street — a man with his own gun who used it to fatally shoot the alleged perp.
What are the details?
Authorities told WTXF-TV the man was targeted at gunpoint just before 7 p.m. Tuesday in the 7000 block of North 15th Street in the city’s West Oak Lane neighborhood.
WPVI-TV said in its video report that the alleged robbery victim told police the man he shot had gotten out of a parked car and that a woman was inside the vehicle.
Police found a man estimated to be in his 30s with three gunshot wounds to the abdomen, WTXF said, citing preliminary information. WPVI, citing police, said he was shot three times in the back.
The alleged robber was taken to Einstein Medical Center and pronounced dead a short time later, WPVI said.
The Ford sedan the alleged robber had exited was found a few blocks away with bullet holes in the driver’s side, WPVI added in its video report, noting that investigators are still looking for the female.
