PA Concealed Carrier Defends Self Against Armed Thug — Hits All His Marks

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA — An intoxicated 19 year old allegedly told a concealed carrier to get off his block before opening fire.

According to, Officer Christine O’Brien confirmed that the concealed carrier responded with deadly force.  While the 19 year old fled the scene, he later wound up at Temple University Hospital in critical condition.  Apparently, the concealed carrier had decent aim – the 19 year old assailant had gunshots in his arms, abdomen and his neck.

When that kid wakes up, Philadelphia Police expect to charge him with aggravated assault amongst other charges.  While they recovered the 25-year-old man’s gun, they haven’t been able to locate the 19-year-old’s.

The investigation is ongoing, and all signs point to the concealed carrier not being charged with any crimes.
