CHESTER, PENNSYLVANIA — A robber was shot and killed following an armed confrontation with an intended victim at 1 am. Police are still determining details surrounding this case but according to the victim, the robber was attempting to rob him before he opened fire and fatally struck his assailant. The assailant then fled several blocks before falling down dead.
According to ABC-6, the victim is currently at the police station for questioning. He is reported to be uninjured and will be released following the investigation.
