Looter Dead After Allegedly Breaking into Gun Store, Getting Shot by Owner


A looter who allegedly broke into a Philadelphia gun store overnight was pronounced dead at the scene after the store owner shot him in the head just after 4 a.m. Fox 5 reports a “crew of looters reportedly attempted to break in,” but the store owner was ready for them. 6 ABC reports the owner had his business, the Firing Line Gun Range and Gun Store, staked out because of another attempted burglary and he was watching surveillance cameras when he saw “three or four men use wire cutters to break through the gate and enter the store.” Chief Inspector Scott Smalls told Fox 29, “One of the individuals that broke into the property, pointed a handgun at him. And that’s when the store owner fired his own weapon — striking the one perpetrator at least one time in the head and he collapsed, dropping his gun between his legs.” The suspect was pronounced dead inside the store after officers arrived and the store owner told police the other suspects fled after he fired the shot.
