Philadephia police say a dispute between drug dealers in the city's Overbrook section ended when one of them was shot with his own gun.

It happened around noon today in the 1100 block of N. 66th St.

Investigators tell Action News that one suspected drug dealer got into a confrontation with another suspected drug dealer over a turf disupte.

One of the suspected drug dealers used his gun and began to hit the other, but in a scuffle that followed the other suspect grabbed the gun and fired and struck the instigator in the chest.

Both men were taken for hospital treatment for their injuries. No names from the shooting have been released.
