Armed Robber Shot in Pizza Shop

Philadelphia area:

PORT RICHMOND – August 9, 2009 (WPVI) — A pizza shop owner in Philadelphia fought back when a man tried to rob him at gunpoint.

The attempted robbery happened inside Tony’s Pizza on the 2900 block of Frankford Avenue in the city’s Port Richmond section.

Police say an armed gunman walked into the pizza shop at 11:45 Saturday night demanding money, but the owner pulled out his own gun and shot the robber.

The would-be thief is now in critical condition.

The ‘Pizza Guys‘ category was originally intended for delivery drivers defending themselves against would-be robbers, but it’s basically expanded to include pizza shops as well.

Murdoc likes him some pizza, and crimes committed against the makers and deliverers of pizza are essentially an attack on Murdoc’s way of life.


  1. That is great…. I love hearing instances of guns defeating criminals. Once again, guns protect citizens from robbers. Thank god for castle doctrines.

  2. Thank goodness it wasn’t a Philly Cheese Steak shop.

    The mob doesn’t like the melanzana messing with their territory!
