Posted: November 09, 2011

A 29-year-old man was in critical condition after being shot by police early Tuesday in Juniata Park, authorities said.

About 12:15 a.m., Hoang Nguyen was driving a BMW on G Street near Wyoming Avenue and sped off when officers tried to stop him, police said. The car had been reported stolen in Pennsport about three hours earlier, police said.

Nguyen pulled the car into a parking lot on Ramona Avenue, ignored officers' orders to raise his hands, and fumbled with his waistband as he tried to run, police said. An officer fired, striking Nguyen twice in the stomach, police said. No weapon was found.

Nguyen was taken to Temple University Hospital. - Staff report
