A Philadelphia robbery of an Uber driver by two suspects ended when police were called to the scene with the driver alerting them that he had a gun, and then firing two shots back at the car.
The incident happened at about 9:20 p.m. on Sunday night. The driver told officers that he was stopped at an intersection when two men approached and said they were going to rob him.
The driver said he was sitting behind the victim when the suspects left. As the suspects returned, the driver fled and called police.
Officers who arrived found the victim unconscious in his car, which was running with the keys inside. The car was running after the suspected robbery with the driver sitting in his seat.
The victim suffered several gunshot wounds. He was treated at a local hospital and has been released.
After arriving at the scene, officers located the car near a barrio, where the suspects got out and ran off.
Police believed the victim had a handgun, which they fired twice at the suspects. Neither suspect appeared to be injured by the shots. Police continued to search for the suspects, including taking them to a local hospital, where one of them was pronounced dead. The second suspect was taken into custody and transported to the hospital for treatment of his injuries.
Investigators were searching for the remaining suspect.
The shooting victim is a 39-year-old man. His name has not been released.
Two suspects have been identified as Emmanuel Mallory, 29, and A.T. Williams, 27.
Cory Mitriiak, a spokesman for Uber, said their records show the driver has been driving for Uber for three years.
The incident ended with the Philadelphia police firing shots.
The suspects were shot dead. The driver is recovering in the hospital, but his condition is unknown.
Mitriiak also said that Uber offered $10,000 in rewards for information leading to the arrest of the suspects. He also said that the victim is cooperating with the investigation.
