A man was killed during a robbery at a Frankford pizzeria, police said

One man is dead and another remains at large after the pair attempted to rob a pizzeria in Philadelphia’s Frankford neighborhood Saturday night.

The incident occurred around 8 p.m. after the two men entered George’s Pizza on Oxford Avenue armed with guns and attempted to rob it, Philadelphia police said.

A pizzeria employee then shot at the men, killing one and causing the other to flee the scene. No other injuries were reported.

“What I saw was a man lying on the ground,” said Bill Hackett of Frankford 6 ABC. “The owner’s son said he had to shoot him because the guy was shooting at him. He said he had to shoot back in self-defense.”

According to police, nothing was stolen in the botched robbery. Two weapons were recovered from the scene.

As of Sunday morning, police had not identified any of the suspected robbers.
