A concealed carrier in Pennsylvania, who has only been identified as a 67 year old man shot and killed an 18 year old attempted armed robber yesterday on a path in Cobbs Creek Park.

It turns out that the suspect was actually armed with a realistic looking pellet gun.

According to local media reports:

Investigators say a 67-year-old man was walking on a path when the suspect ran up and demanded cash.

“He hears somebody running behind him. As he turns around, he sees a masked man with a gun pointed at him saying, ‘Give it up, give me all you got,” said Supt. Michael Chitwood, Upper Darby Township Police.

However the intended victim grabbed the suspect’s gun.

During the struggle, police say the victim pulled out his own weapon and fired one shot striking the attempted robber in the head, killing him.

The victim was treated for chest pain at a local hospital following the incident. He will be OK.

This is the 53rd defensive gun use we’ve documented in the state Pennsylvania and the 1,395th defensive gun use we’ve documented overall.
