Footage from KYW shows robbers running towards the driver, who, at that point, is unseen in the video. The thieves are seen fleeing back in the direction from which they came.

The driver shows up in the clip, opening fire at the men as they ran for their lives.

The two 20-year-old suspects were shot multiple times, according to police.

One was seriously injured and taken to hospital, where he later died. The second man is in critical condition.

A third suspect is still on the run.

“The person who was targeted in this robbery was in possession of a valid permit to carry,” Insp. DF Pace told the KYW. “He stayed on location, spoke to police, described what happened, and additionally, there were numerous cameras in the area that we were able to access, which confirmed his version of what happened.”
