    Story From NBC 10

    [line]An alleged robber got quite a shock from his victim, who pulled a gun on him and opened fire.

    It happened in Philadelphia's Logan Square Tuesday.

    Police said Luther Cook, 42, pretended to have a weapon and attempted to rob the victim.But the victim actually had a gun and shot Cook, NBC 10 reported.

    Cook is listed in stable condition and faces several charges in the incident.

    Police have not released the name of the shooter, but said he will not be charged since he acted in self-defense.

    I'm glad to see that they are clearing him right away. Since the other guy really didn't have a gun, a lesser cop may have tried to charge him with something like unnecessary use of force.
