    Wounded FedEx Driver Kills Armed Robber During Shootout in Philadelphia, Police Say - NBC 10

    A wounded FedEx delivery driver turned the tables on an armed robber who shot him, killing him during a shootout in Philadelphia, police said.

    "Based on the preliminary story that was relayed it appears to be self defense: he was shot first, he fired back," Acting Police Commissioner Christine Coulter said.

    The 32-year-old FedEx driver traveled to the 600 block of Unruh Avenue in Northeast Philadelphia at 7:05 p.m. Tuesday to make a delivery. As he walked to the home he was approached by an armed robber who stole items from his FedEx truck, according to investigators. The robber then opened fire, shooting the driver in the abdomen.

    The driver, who police said was armed with his own weapon, returned fire, striking the robber several times. The injured robber managed to escape with several stolen items. Meanwhile, the injured delivery driver got into his vehicle and drove away.
