65-year-old Philadelphia man, licensed to carry, turns tables on younger attackers

A 65-year-old man pulled a gun and shot two men who were beating him near his home in Philadelphia on Tuesday, police said.

It happened around 8:30 p.m. in the city's Queen Village neighborhood.

Authorities said a 20-year-old man and a 21-year-old man started accosting the man and his wife and the altercation soon turned physical. That's when police said the man pulled his .45-caliber handgun and shot both of the younger men.

Police said the younger men were taken to a hospital and the 65-year-old man was treated for injuries to his mouth and head. Investigators said the older man had a license to carry.
It's unclear if the men will face any charges.
