Surveillance video captured the moment when a 14-year-old boy pulled out a gun and shot a robber in the face while trying to steal cash from the his family’s pizzeria in Philadelphia.

The violent confrontation took place around 9:30 p.m. on December 9 at the restaurant named Bold Pizza on Spring Garden Street, where one of the three men, who had just robbed a nearby CVS pharmacy, broke into the pizzeria.

The images show the thief reaching over the cash register and fighting with the owner of the store, shortly before his son produced a gun and opened fire.

Later, police followed a blood trail that led them to another of the suspects, at a subway station about three blocks away, while the injured subject was taken to Jefferson Hospital, where he was reported in critical condition.

“There was money on the floor and there was also some broken glass inside the store, and there was also a lot of blood,” said Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small.

Police are still searching for the suspect’s accomplices.
