A store employee shot and killed a robber inside a MetroPCS store in Southwest Philadelphia on Monday afternoon, 8/26. It happened around 4 p.m. on the 7000 block of Elmwood Avenue near 70th Street. Surveillance footage from inside the store shows what happened. The suspect, a man in his 30s, walks in brandishing a firearm and throws a bag on the counter. The employee quickly pulled his own weapon, which he has a license to carry, and shot the suspect multiple times. The man was pronounced dead at the scene. There was no one else in the store at the time and the employee was not injured. Police say that the MetroPCS store was robbed two other times this year. Homicide detectives are investigating.


UPDATE: 9/1/19 No charges will be filed against a store clerk who opened fire and killed an armed robber at a phone store in Southwest Philadelphia last month. The Philadelphia district attorney's office said after reviewing surveillance video from the store the police deemed the shooting justifiable self defense.

A Philadelphia man who previously worked in loss prevention was found hiding in the ceiling of a King of Prussia Mall department store after stealing $7,000 from the registers. Upper Merion Police were called by Macy's security about a suspicious person inside the store at 4:30 a.m. on Sunday, 8/25. Upper Merion was assisted by the K9's from Lower Merion, Plymouth Township, and Norristown Police Departments. After searching for around five hours, they located 32-year-old Nicholas Redmond in the ceiling on the first floor of the store. They believe he knew the ins and outs of the building from his prior employment. Redmond also admitted to two other thefts in August totaling more than $12,000. He was taken to Upper Merion Police Department. He was arraigned and taken to Montgomery County Correctional Facility in lieu of $10,000 cash bail.

Three people, including two teens, were injured in a shooting in Center City on Monday afternoon, 8/26. It happened around 3 p.m. on the 2100 block of Fitzwater Street in the Graduate Hospital neighborhood. A 17-year-old was was shot in the right leg. He was taken to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center and is in stable condition. A 23-year-old was shot in the right calf. He was taken to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center and is in stable condition. A 17-year-old was shot twice in the stomach and twice in the back. He was taken to Jefferson University Hospital in critical condition. No arrests have been made.
