Police this morning continue their investigation into the fatal shooting of a would-be robber last night by the owner of a Tacony deli store.
The shootout happened at about 6 p.m. Tuesday at Anna's Deli on the 4400 block of Princeton Avenue.
Police say a 19-year-old man approached the deli's cash register, armed with a 9 mm handgun. He then fired two shots at the store owner's wife.
That's when the deli owner, identified as a 55-year-old man, emerged from the back of the store with a 9 mm handgun and shot the would-be robber in the chest, according to police.
