Concealed Carrier Shoots Armed Robbery Suspect

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA — People forget that unlike other major metropolitan cities like New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles, the citizens of the city of Brotherly Love can and do carry concealed. Thankfully, a customer at a gas station in Philadelphia was able to use his legally concealed carry handgun to stop an attempted carjacking and robbery from taking place.

According to FOX 29 Philadelphia, the concealed carrier was walking out of a gas station store with a bag of potato chips when he encountered a man first try to rob a gas station clerk exiting the building and then, when that failed, try to rob him.

The robbery suspect was parked inside a blue minivan as the store was believed to be closing. The gas station clerk walked out into the parking lot where he was confronted by the suspect and told to get in the minivan. The clerk ran back into the store for safety.

Undeterred by his failed attempt, the robber saw another guy eating from a bag of potato chips and must have figured he could recover by pointing his illegally owned handgun at him. Well, the guy holding the chips was a concealed carrier and he was armed. Seeing a gun pointed at him, he had seconds to react. He drew his pistol and reportedly fired three times — striking the robber’s abdomen, hand and back.
