A pair of teenagers thought they would get the best of a 60-year-old man and steal his car. What they didn’t know was that he was carrying concealed and ready to defend himself.
A 60-year-old Philidelphia man was getting out of his car last night when a pair of armed teens walked up to him demanding his keys. One of the teens was armed. But instead of handing his keys over, he drew his concealed carry gun and fired at the suspects. One of the teens fired back, and there were 17 shots fired between the two men.
“We know the shootout consisted of 17 shots, because we found 17 spent shell casings,” Chief Inspector Small said, adding, “We know that some of those spent shell casings are from the 60-year-old victims gun and some of the shell casings are from the male who was committing the carjacking who got shot.” via CBS PHILLY.
Fortunately, the concealed carrier was not hit. One of the teens, who is 16-years-old was shot twice in the leg. The police found the wounded teen in a car that was stolen last week. He was transported to the hospital and is in critical condition.
