    Reads like he did the right thing. He apparently felt he was in little danger until the perp breached the door.

    Score: Good guys 2; Bad Guys 0. All in all, a greatday for Philadelphia as two dangerous criminals have been permanently removed from the gene pool. The store owner should definitely improve the quality of his security door, but it sounds like he waited for the opportune moment and then took action.

    Three officers fired, and the man was hit once in the chest. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

    I wonder where the other two rounds went?

    She probably suggested that the young thug needed to get a job!

    Two? I'm wondering where the other 19 went?

    I seriously have a hard time thinking that three Oficers who fear for their lives would only fire one round apiece.

    I know I'd probably fire 3 or 4 even if I wasn't scared out of my wits.

    And if I was, then I'd probably shoot untill the noise of rapid fire brought me back to me senses.
    Or maybe the sound of my gun going click, click, click!

    At 7:39 p.m., officers responded to a report of a shooting in the 3400 block of Braddock Street in Harrowgate and found a 36-year-old woman "lying on the sidewalk, bleeding," Small said.

    As they were trying to help the woman, a 22-year-old man appeared in a doorway "within feet" of the officers and pointed a gun at them, Small said.

    "It was a pretty scary situation," he said.

    The officers ordered the man to drop the gun, which he failed to do, Small said. Three officers fired, and the man was hit once in the chest. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
    So the Perp was within "Feet" of the LEO's they were able to draw and had enough time to order Perp to drop his gun before firing and only 1 round was on target,Maybe they need to invest in Night sites and more training,those other rounds went somewhere in a residential neighborhood
