A pizza shop owner in Philadelphia fought back when a man tried to rob him at gunpoint. The attempted robbery happened inside Tony's Place pizza shop on the 2900 block of Frankford Avenue in the city's Port Richmond section.

Police say an armed gunman walked into the pizza shop at 11:45 Saturday night demanding money, but the owner pulled out his own gun and shot the robber in the back.

The would-be thief is now in critical condition at Temple University Hospital.

No word yet if the shop owner faces any charges.
