Looters Pick the Wrong Gun Shop to Loot, Owner Lights Them Up

Looters in South Philadelphia apparently picked the wrong gun shop to try and loot on Tuesday.

The owner of Firing Line Inc. told the Philly police that he had been sleeping in his shop during these harrowing days of riots because he feared that his firearms would fall into the hands of dangerous rioters.

Now it looks like his fears were spot on.

The owner told police he was monitoring his surveillance camera and saw three or four men trying to get in around 4:15 a.m. The group was using bolt cutters on the gate. A broken lock could later be seen on the ground.

The group then smashed in the back door and broke glass, police said. When they made it upstairs the 67-year-old owner started shooting his Bushmaster M-4 rifle, striking shot one man in the head, police said

The criminal reportedly died right there in the shop where he was shot.

Police also found a handgun that the store owner said did not belong to him.

A second assailant fled to a local hospital with a bullet wound to his shoulder.

The gunshop owner was taken to a police station and questioned.

However, police did not say that the store owner would be charged and no charges had been filed by Tuesday afternoon.

Commissioner Danielle Outlaw said officials don’t endorse “vigilante justice or taking the law into one’s own hands,” however, she added, “there are very clear laws that allow us to protect ourselves and our property from harm.”
