Investigators say the man appeared to have a gun.

Police shot a man early Tuesday morning, because they say he appeared to be armed after holding up a 7-11 store.

It began on the 6100 block of Ridge Avenue in the Roxborough section of Philadelphia.

Detectives say the robber stole cash from the store then started to make a run for it.

Police caught up with him about a block away, and shot him in the leg. The man is at Temple University Hospital.
