Bar Robbery

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A suspect was shot by an off-duty cop during an attempted robbery inside a Northeast Philadelphia bar late Tuesday evening.

The incident happened at about 11:30 p.m. inside McNally’s Tavern on Brighton Street in the city’s Mayfair section.

According to police, three suspects, one armed, entered the bar and demanded money from several customers inside the bar.

Investigators say an off-duty Philadelphia police officer, who was inside the bar during the attempted robbery, opened fire and struck one suspect. The suspects then fled the scene.

The suspect who was shot ended up at Albert Einstein Medical Center and is in critical condition.

The two other suspects were eventually apprehended by police.

No patrons inside the bar were injured. The shooting remains under police investigation.
