A Slice Of Justice: Armed Citizen Stops Pizzeria Robbery

posted on November 17, 2016

Around closing time Tuesday night, a customer dropped by Porfirio’s Pizza and Pasta in Levittown, Pa., for his to-go order. Following him almost immediately were two men, both masked and armed. Then things got violent, quickly. 

One robber began striking the customer with his pistol, while the second threatened two employees with his gun. However, neither robber could have known the customer was carrying a handgun when he opened fire in self-defense. He fired twice at his attacker, a 30-year-old male. Then, to protect the shop owners, the customer shot the other robber—the 22-year-old brother of the first suspect. 

Investigators said the older brother died at the scene, while the younger brother was rushed to the hospital, where he remains in critical condition. Police Department Lt. Stephen Foreman told NBC-10, “Two subjects enter the store in a rapid, aggressive, violent manner ... Obviously they never expected the customer to be armed.”
