Video: Robbery Victim Serves The Attackers Instant Justice In Philadelphia

The Philadelphia Police Department and the Shooting Investigation Group is asking for the public’s assistance for information in reference to this shooting incident.

The city is seeing an increased number of guns on the street, whether they were purchased legally and stolen, purchased legally and sold to criminals, or homemade.

Additionally, the past two years have presented a number of difficulties to large, metropolitan police departments: first with COVID-19 and criminal processing backlogs; then with anti-police protests and rhetoric, including calls to defend departments; then with staffing shortages, according to Outlaw and other police chiefs who spoke at the conference.

On July 11, 2022, 15th District officers responded to a report of a shooting at 4201 E. Cheltenham Ave at 1:49 pm and located a 46-year-old man lying in the street at the intersection of Cheltenham Avenue and Erdick Street, police say.

Authorities say the man was suffering from gunshot wounds to his backside and left ankle and he was transported to Jefferson Torresdale Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition.

Police released surveillance video which appears to show the victim wrestling with the first suspect before taking the gun out of his hand to shoot a second suspect who approached and fired the two shots that struck the victim.

According to officials, the first suspect was trying to rob the victim as he was standing on the sidewalk and the second suspect jumped in after seeing a struggle ensued.

Authorities say it appears that the victim struck the second suspect at least one time.

Both suspects then fled in a dark-colored SUV going south on the 5400 hundred block of Edrick Street.

Watch the video below:

Philly saw a record number of homicides last year, with 562 total homicide victims, compared to 499 in 2020 and 356 in 2019. While the homicide rate has decreased more than 10% so far in 2022, with 216 homicides so far this year compared to 241 at the same time last year, total violent crime is up about 7%.

Most of that increase has been driven by a whopping 58% increase in armed robberies, with 1,294 gun robberies reported this year compared to 819 over the same time period last year, according to the Philadelphia Police Department’s (PPD’s) weekly crime statistics.

By any chance, is Philly blessed with a George Soro’s bought and paid for DA? Actually, I just looked it up and yes they are so blessed. Too bad this article doesn’t mention that as the reason for their upswing in crime.
