Armed security guard at Philadelphia gas station shoots at suspect who threw rock at him, police say

An armed security guard hired to protect a Philadelphia gas station shot at a person who threw a rock at him Monday. 

The guard was working at a KARCO gas station at the intersection of Broad and Clearfield streets at around 4:35 p.m. when he was escorting someone away from the property for harassing and panhandling customers, the Philadelphia Police Department told Fox News Digital. 

The suspect threw a rock at the guard, who then fired his weapon, police said. No one was hit or injured. 

Authorities have not disclosed whether any charges have been filed against the suspect or guard.

“It’s going to be a very thorough investigation since deadly force was used, even though no one was shot, no one was even struck by gunfire, no one was even hit by a rock,” Small said.
