As reported, an armed robber entered a Philadelphia, PA pizza shop, at about 11:45 PM on Saturday. The robber is said to have threatened the life of the pizza shop owner, while demanding money. The shop owner reportedly grabbed his gun and fired in self defense. The robber was hit, and was listed in critical condition at a local hospital. Neither the shop owner nor any innocent bystanders were harmed.
Armed robbers are an especially vile type of criminal, due to their willingness to injure and kill innocent people, just to take the hard-earned money of those victims. Luckily, this pizza shop owner was armed, and was able to save himself from violent attack. The heroic actions of the armed shop owner have also likely saved future victims of the armed robber. That is because armed robbers tend to go on committing their crimes until they are shot in self defense or finally caught and sent to prison.
