FedEx Driver Returns Fire After Being Robbed And Shot; Suspect Ends Up Dead

One of the reasons the Founding Fathers included the Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights, aside from providing ordinary citizens with the means by which to fight back against tyranny, is so that people could protect their lives and property from individuals who want to take those things away from them.

This is exactly what happened when a Philadelphia FedEx driver was shot in the gut and robbed on Tuesday evening. Thanks to the Second Amendment, the driver was able to return fire and save his own life.

Here are the details via TheBlaze:

The unnamed 32-year-old FedEx driver had just dropped off a package at a home in Northeast Philadelphia shortly after 7 p.m., when he was mugged and shot before defending himself with his own firearm, hitting the suspect several times. Police confirmed later that the driver is licensed to carry.

Despite his injuries, the robbery victim then drove himself to a nearby grocery store, where he saw a police officer and reported what happened.

Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small told KYW-TV that the FedEx driver “was able to tell police that he was making a delivery in the 600 block of Unruh and right when he got done making that delivery, he was approached by at least one male and he was robbed at point of gun.”

Minutes later, police found the 27-year-old suspect in critical condition in an alley with “multiple gunshot wounds to his chest, back and torso,” KYW reported.

The suspect was reportedly in possession of the FedEx driver’s key and badge. The suspect later died at the hospital.

At this particular time, the police are still trying to verify that the suspect was armed or if the driver might have been shot with his own weapon.

FedEX released the following statement after the incident:

“The safety of our team members is of paramount importance at FedEx. As such, we do not publicly disclose details relating to our security policies. As this incident remains an ongoing police investigation, we will have no further comment.”
