Dramatic surveillance video purports to depict a man disarming one alleged robber as they struggled on a street corner and then apparently using that weapon on the thief’s alleged armed accomplice.
The tables-turning gunfight occurred on Monday afternoon in Philadelphia’s Wissinoming neighborhood.
Local cops, who released the footage of the northeast Philly incident that might seem like a sequence from an implausible, direct-to-streaming action movie rather than real life, have asked the public’s help in identifying the suspects or in shedding further light on the crime.
Law enforcement authorities in the increasingly misnamed City of Brotherly Love described what allegedly happened in the encounter that left the victim with gunshot wounds to his posterior and left ankle.
Video of the incident reveals two male offenders exit a dark colored SUV, possibly an Infiniti. Offender #1 attempted to rob the victim while he was standing on the sidewalk and a struggle ensued. The victim managed to wrestle a firearm away from offender #1 just as offender #2 began firing shots from his own firearm, striking the victim two times. The victim returned fire and appeared to have struck offender #2 at least one time. Both offenders retreated to their dark colored SUV and fled south…”
“Neighbors say they have had enough of this brazen broad-daylight violence,” CBS Philadelphia reported.
First responders transported the victim, age 46, who was found lying the street, to a local hospital where he was listed in stable condition. Cops reportedly recovered a gun at the scene.
In the same Wissinoming vicinity, a man, age 34, who was standing in front of his home, was shot and killed at about 11 p.m. on Tuesday. Detectives say three men opened fire and ran off, according to ABC Philadelphia affiliate WPVI.
“As of Sunday, [Philadelphia] citywide robberies involving a gun spiked 63.21% year-to-date, rising to 1,526 from 935 reported during the same period in 2021, according to public police statistics. There have been 2,233 reported shooting incidents citywide year-to-date, a 6.59% increase compared to the 2,095 incidents reported during the same period last year, according to the data. ” Fox News reported. “Citywide shooting victims also increased 4.24%…”
Murders have, however, supposedly lessened by about six percent year over year.

Philadelphia is one of several Democrat-controlled, U.S. big cities experiencing a massive crime wave, including but not limited to gun violence, where George Soros cash helped elected a soft-on-crime district attorney.
All suspects are presumed innocent until or unless they are convicted in a court of law of any alleged crimes.
Here is some of the Twitter reaction to the tense crime video:
If this was NY the victim would get charged with possession of a firearm.
