An armed passerby, carrying his permitted pistol, is being credited with saving the lives of several people when he stepped in off the street and killed a gunman shooting at occupants of a Philadelphia barbershop.
The incident Sunday began when a man, identified by police only by his age, 40, pulled out a gun and opened fire on barbers and customers inside Falah Barber Shop.
“They were arguing,” Yusaf Mack, 16, a customer inside the shop at the time told WCAU News. “They were taking it too far, and one of the barbers said, ‘chill out.’”
“I heard gunshots, so I ducked and I ran,” said Mack.
While the gunman was shooting, a passerby responded to the gunfire, running into the shop and pulling his own gun. He opened fire and struck the gunman in the chest.
