Philadelphia man with license to carry shoots, kills would-be car thief: reports
Car theft is at least fourth reported incident in Philadelphia in which victim turns tables on would-be thieves

By Stephen Sorace
A Philadelphia homeowner with a license to carry walked out on a trio of thieves while they were attempting to steal his car Tuesday morning, shooting and killing one suspect, according to local reports.

The attempted car theft unfolded around 8:17 a.m. on the 5800 block of Cobbs Creek Parkway when three unknown men approached the victim’s vehicle, FOX26 Philadelphia reported, citing police.

The suspects tried to attach yellow cables to the car to tow it away, but were caught when the homeowner came outside, WPVI-TV reported, citing sources.

The victim, who legally carried a firearm, shot one of the suspects who was only identified as a 52-year-old male, police said. The suspect was rushed to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, where he died of his injuries.

Looks like Ruffin the ruffian now rests in a coffin.

Was the philly car thief armed??? Why didn’t the homeowner call the PD and why did he leave his home as he was out of danger while inside his home. Was the home owner an off duty PO and if not, could POSSIBLY be a bad shoot and we will have to see what the outcome is.


Nothing says he went out to confront them. Sounds more like he just walked out into them.

So is that the new MO in Philly? Act like a repossession business (attaching yellow cables) or were these guys really there to repossess the car and the delinquent owner shot one of them?


I just bought a 365xl a couple of weeks ago. Great edc gun.


The “City of Brotherly Love” is making a very spirited attempt to overtake the “Windy City” in crime.

Home boi took the Hell Bound Train instead of the Chattanooga Choo Choo.
