A Pennsylvania resident shot and killed one of two men that attempted to pose as fake cops and invaded his home.
Multiple news outlets are reporting that two men, who told a 25-year-old Philadelphia resident that they were cops, forced their way into the house, zip-tied the homeowner, demanded money, and threatened to kill him.
The homeowner, who has a license to carry and noticed these weren’t real police officers, was able to reach his pocketed gun and shoot one of the fake cops in the head, chest, and arm.
The other fake cop ran away and has not been captured at this time.
The fake cop that was wounded died at a nearby hospital.
