Skip to comments.Video Shows Armed Robber Make Fatal Mistakes in Philly Shooting
Posted on 09/04/2019 6:13:23 AM PDT by marktwain
At about 4:10 p.m., 26 August 2019, a suspect wearing a hoodie enters a MetroPCS cell phone store in Philadelphia, PA. The store and employees have been the victim of several robberies. On the alert, the employee watches the suspect intently as he enters the store, carrying a handgun in his left hand. The suspect throws a bag to the employee and tells him to fill it with cell phones. The employee sees his chance.
The employee makes the decision to draw and engage the robber. He brought his sights on target, and the robber realized his peril. The video is stopped by CBS3 at that point.
As seen in the video, it only takes a second of inattention from the robber for a defender to take decisive action. The robber telegraphed his intentions by wearing a hoodie on a 75-degree day in late August. He came in with a handgun in his left hand, and a bag in his right hand. The employee was watching him intently, with his left hand near his holstered handgun.
The employee immediately understood what was happening and the deadly threat he faced. He did not spend time in denial of what was happening. He processed and accepted what was going on very quickly and formulated a plan of action. Given the circumstances, it is highly likely the employee had considered various scenarios, had decided on various what if courses of action long before this robbery attempt occurred. Presented with reality, he only needed to pick a response and implement it.

Left handed armed defender. Dude was quick, and good.
“People who want the population disarmed claim that defense of self with a firearm never happens. They construct fictional scenarios to explain why the wisdom of 400 years of human history is wrong.”
If Obama has a son would he look like him?
Trained and ready...
Just wait until they put is Mama on TV.
He be a good boy...He don’t have no money, what’s a boy to do?
And democrats would be happier if the employee was unarmed.
You never know in a liberal city like Philly but the DA said no charges being filed against employee.
Classic example of one of SouthNarc’s ‘pre-assault cues’, when the guy turned away. Had he turned back, he most likely would have shot the clerk. Good on the clerk for recognizing that.

A very educational video.
He also really wanted a new printer also, two birds, one stone...
Good shooting, Citizen. Civilization thankd you.
I’m willing to bet the employee had practiced drawing from that sitting position. That seemed very natural, very smooth. I wonder why he raised his muzzle past the target then brought it back down onto target? Yes it helps you acquire the front sight. I train/practice bringing it up to a muscle-memory alignment and then acquire the sight...
Did you see the uncut whole video? He didn’t mess around, he did a full mag dump into the guy even as he was laying on the floor.
He did exactly what he should have, the guy still had the gun in his hand.
Great video and story.
Too bad we can’t see the next 30 seconds of video.
Piece of crap is dead, normal people safe. That’s a good outcome.
THIS is what the dems want to take away from us. They want the criminal to waltz in and take what is “rightfully” his from his “oppressors.”
Yep, practice at 3, 5, 10 yards.
