W. Philly shopkeeper critically wounds bandit during robbery
#1
Philadelphia Police say a corner store owner shot an armed bandit during an attempted robbery this morning, leaving the suspect in critical condition.

Few details were available.

However, police said a 31-year-old man entered the store near 54th and Wyalusing Streets in the Mill Creek neighborhood about 8:20 a.m. The suspect was armed and demanded money, police said.

Police said the clerk at the time, who is believed to be the store owner, shot the bandit twice - once in the stomach and then in a leg.

The suspect was taken to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

Both guns were recovered, but no information was immediately available on the types.

Police said no charges are pending against the shopkeeper.

I hope the cops return the shopkeeper's gun.

I hope the cops return the shopkeeper's gun.

Why would both guns need to be recovered? If the shop owner owned his firearm legally there is no reason to recover (steal) it.

Even though we have castle doctrine et. all now, this did happen in Philthy. I really hope that the shop employee does not get charged with anything and gets his firearm back quickly (I know, pipe dream. I can hope, though, can't I?).

They'll keep the gun until the investigation is over, at which point it'll have suffered corrosion from neglect, and surface damage from mishandling.

Unfortunately, you're right, and on top of that, one likely has to file petitions in court for a return of property... if PPD will actually obey that in a timely fashion before the gun "accidentally" was "destroyed sooner than expected". Nope, I'm not cynical, I'm a realist. Big GrinRolleyes

Yup, even the good guys have multiple hoops to jump through for return of property.

If anyone here has not read eells story in his own words, please do.
