The 14-year-old son of an employee of Philadelphia’s BOLD Pizza shot a suspect in the face Thursday as the suspect was allegedly strangling the employee.

The incident occurred “just before 10 p.m.,” after the alleged robber entered the store and fought with the employee over the cash register, FOX 29 reported.

As the altercation escalated the suspect allegedly began to strangle the employee, at which point the employee’s 14-year-old grabbed a handgun from under the counter and shot the suspect in the face.

The suspect fled the scene but police followed the blood trail and apprehended him. He was hospitalized in critical condition.

Chief Inspector Scott Small said, “It was clearly a sign of a robbery because the cash register was open. There was money on the floor and there was also some broken glass inside the store and there was also a large amount of blood.”

Police believe the wounded suspect to be one of three men who robbed a CVS Pharmacy just prior to the alleged attempted robbery of BOLD Pizza, WPVI noted.
