Philly police shoot gun-brandishing robbery suspect

By Jeff Shields
Inquirer Staff Writer
PHILADELPHIA, Pa. — Police surrounded a Rite Aid store while it was being held up last night and then wounded the shotgun-wielding robber as he walked out the front door and leveled his weapon at the officers, Chief Inspector Keith Sadler said last night.

The accused robber, identified only as a white man about 55 years old, was in stable condition at Frankford Hospital-Torresdale Campus after being shot twice in the legs, Sadler said. Four officers fired their weapons, he said.

More than 100 onlookers gathered in and around the busy Parkwood Shopping Center at Academy and Byberry Roads last night, where activity was shut down just after the shootings.
