A man who was assaulted leaving a Chinese take-out restaurant turned the tables and shot his attacker in Philadelphia's Olney neighborhood, police say. The shots rang out just before 11:30 p.m. Tuesday near Fifth and West Rockland streets in Olney. A customer leaving a take-out restaurant was punched in the face by a would-be robber.

But the 18-year-old suspect chased him across the street, and the 31-year-old victim fought back. "The complainant is actually armed, and he has a valid permit to carry," said Stanford. "At some point he pulls out that firearm. And he fired several shots, striking the male." The suspect was hit once in the leg.
