Police have released surveillance video of an attempted robbery and shooting that occurred Sunday morning and is reminiscent of the movie "Dirty Harry."

Investigators said two brothers, aged 20 and 21, were standing in front of the Bacalao Food Market, located in the 4200 block of Frankford Avenue in Frankford shortly before noon.

A man armed with an extremely long-barrelled gun approached and demanded the duo give up their property, saying, "empty your pockets," according to police. The gunman can be seen on video waving around the black revolver rather nonchalantly as several cars whiz by.

When one of the brothers pulled out his cell phone, the gunman shot him and ran away. Police said the bullet passed through the victim's hip and exited through his right buttocks. He was taken to Temple University Hospital in good condition.

The suspect was last seen running east on Church Street. He is described as a 5-foot-11-inch tall black male in his early-to-mid-30s with a stocky build. He was last seen wearing a blue suede jacket, a white thermal shirt, jeans, tan boots and a blue hat.

I'd be surprised if a quarter of the readers even know what Dirty Harry IS.

What is shocking to me, isn't the crime, but that the criminal woud be so emboldened to have such a large and obvious gun. I if I had a son he would shoot people with a Dirty Harry style gun. Dodgy

This is an extremely good point. I'd say a percentage of high 90s of people lawfully carrying firearms would never even consider carrying such a monstrosity outside of the Yukon. This guy though I'm willing to bet does it intentionally for the wow factor.

I've OCed my Taurus 686 and S&W 689 on numerous occasions. Why wouldn't I?

Comfort. No other reason. Are either of those as monstrous as what is in the photo? If so your back is stronger than mine no doubt.
