Looters Break Into Philly Gun Store; It Backfires on Them As 67-Year-Old Owner Shoots Back


Rioting and looting should never be condoned.

But if you're going to choose a business to burglarize, common sense says that a gun store shouldn't be one of them.

A group of young men attempted to rob a Philadelphia gun store on Tuesday night as protests surrounding the death of George Floyd spread across the nation.

The young men used bolt cutters to get through the gate.

They then smashed the backdoor and began smashing windows.

What the looters didn't expect, however, was that the gun shop owner would be inside.

When they got upstairs, the gun store owner was there and began firing in self defense.

One of the bullets hit one of the young men in the head, killing him in the store.
