A store owner has been charged for the shooting of a teenage vandalism suspect in the Summerdale section of Philadelphia earlier this week.

Hanglong Ing, 26, of the 600 block of Mayfair Street, faces a number of charges including aggravated assault and weapons violations.

The incident happened around 11:45 p.m. Monday at Kenny's Beer Place in the 800 block of East Sanger Avenue.

According to investigators, Ing told the 16-year-old that he was not allowed in the store because he was a juvenile.

There was an argument, police say, and that teen returned with another juvenile male.
