Tacony store owner shoots armed robber dead

A store owner in Philadelphia’s Tacony section faced off with an armed suspected robber Tuesday night – and only one survived.

Police say the armed suspect stormed Anna’s Deli on the 4400 block of Princeton Avenue and pointed the gun at the female owner who was behind the cashier.

“He announces the robbery and then reaches in the cash register and starts removing money, the clerk screams,” Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said.

Investigators say the husband emerged from the back of the store with his own handgun.
“The suspect fires at least one shot at the store owner. The store owner returns fire,” Small said.

The suspect was struck at least once in the chest and pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say the killing appears justified.
