A 60-year-old man shot a would-be robber who was carrying a fake gun, police said Sunday.
Police were called to the 3200 block of S. 15th Street at 8:29 a.m., a block from the Allegheny Avenue Broad Street station, and found the suspect, 22, on the ground “with a gunshot wound to the buttocks.”
The 60-year-old man who called officers said the would-be robber pointed the gun replica at him and demanded money, and that the older man then shot him.
