PA: Robber Fires Blanks, Victim Fires Bullets

The detective was off duty.  Just another armed citizen.

According to police, two men entered Rising Sun Pizza late Thursday night and announced a robbery. One of the men placed a revolver at the head of the lone customer, an unidentified Philadelphia detective, and ordered him to the floor.

Police said the robbers stole $20 from the detective before turning their attention toward the restaurant’s two employees.

“That’s when the detective drew his firearm and identified himself as a police officer,” police officials said. One of the suspects then fired his weapon -- which turned out to be loaded only with blanks -- at the detective who shot back.
