Once again, a good guy with a gun stopped a robbery and possibly saved lives. Remember: just about every criminal who carries a firearm will not hesitate to use it to commit a crime.
A person in the Falah Barber Shop on Preston Street in Philadelphia started fighting with another customer. The aggressor, age 40, pulled out a firearm and started shooting at the barbers and customers which included some children.
Upon hearing shots, a man who was outside the barber shop ran in, presented his firearm and hit center mass of the perpetrator with a single shot, stopping the attack. The perp died after being taken to a hospital.
Amazingly, no one else in the barber shop was shot. This good guy with a gun saved the day and many lives.
NBC10 in Philadelphia talked with Yusaf Mack, age 16:
“I heard gunshots so I ducked and I ran… He [the good guy] just shot him and when he was done shooting he ran.”
The man who saved everyone’s lives later turned himself into the police where it was determined he had a permit to carry a concealed firearm. In all likelihood, he will not be charged, citing self-defense.
Once again a good guy with a gun saved lives.
