An alleged armed robber was shot and killed by a restaurant customer with a concealed permit Sunday night in Philadelphia.
6 ABC reports the alleged robbery occurred around 10:30 p.m. at a Wingstop that was open for take-out only.
Fox 29 reports police say the robbery suspect came into the restaurant, walked behind the counter, displayed a gun, and “asked for all the money.”
A customer with the concealed carry permit then entered the restaurant and was confronted by the robber, who demanded he hand over his cell phone. The customer reached but drew a gun instead of a phone, and shot the suspect in the neck.
