A Philadelphia man taking a smoke break outside his home "turned the tables" on an armed would-be robber when he pulled out his own legal gun and fatally shot him, according to police.

"It looked like a robbery victim, at this time, turned the tables on a would-be robber and shot him in the head," Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said of the matter, according to NBC 10.

The incident unfolded just before 11:30 Wednesday evening in South Philadelphia near Moyamensing Avenue. A 24-year-old man smoking outside his home told police that a would-be robber approached him while riding a bike and soon pulled out a gun and "announced a robbery," according to police.

The resident pulled out his own licensed to carry gun and opened fire on the would-be robber, police said. The alleged robber was shot in the head, but was able to fire off a round or two, the 24-year-old South Philly man told police.

"According to the 24-year-old who fired the shot, the perpetrator, after being shot in the head, pulled his gun and fired one or two shots, but did not strike the 24-year-old who fired the initial shot," Small said.

Police responded to the scene and found the 30-year-old Asian male laying on the sidewalk with a gunshot to the head. He was transported to a hospital and died early Thursday morning, according to police.

Two guns were recovered from the scene. No charges have been filed and the investigation is ongoing.

A good news story of the day. Victim unharmed, future victims won't be harmed and our tax dollars won't have to pay for this guy going in and out of our legal system for the rest of his life. It's a win win all around.

The robber pulled his gun twice?
