A FedEx driver drew his own firearm to defend himself against an armed attacker on Tuesday night.

Philadelphia, PA – A FedEx driver suffered a gunshot wound to the stomach before he pulled out his own gun and killed the armed robber who attacked him, police said.

The incident occurred in the 600-block of Unruh Avenue at approximately 7:10 p.m. on Tuesday night, WPVI reported.

The 32-year-old FedEx driver had just finished making a delivery at a home when he was confronted by the 27-year-old armed suspect, according to WCAU.

The robber stole multiple packages from the FedEx truck before he shot the driver in the abdomen, police said.

That’s when the driver pulled out his own gun and retired fire, hitting his attacker multiple times.

The suspect made off with several packages as he fled the scene, while the wounded FedEx driver jumped back into the delivery truck and drove to a nearby ACME store to get help, WPVI reported.

“He pulled up real fast and got out and said something to the cop,” witness Claudia Griggs told the news outlet. “He said he was shot.”

Police rushed the wounded victim to Einstein Hospital, where his condition was stabilized, WCAU reported.

“We’re hopeful that he will be OK,” Philadelphia Acting Police Commissioner Christine Coulter said.

Meanwhile, officers located an unconscious man in an alley in the 1400-block of Creston Street suffering from gunshot wounds to his back and chest, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

He was carrying packages that had been stolen from the FedEx driver, according to WCAU.

The suspect was transported to Einstein Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Investigators took one man into custody after he was spotted standing near a vehicle that police said may have been used to drive the suspect away from the scene, WCAU reported.

Good on ya, FedEx driver! This is what happens when we’re able to either open/conceal carry a firearm – we protect ourselves, our property, or in this case, others’ property! If the bad guys knew everyone had their own guns, they wouldn’t attempt this sort of thing, unless they had a deathwish, that is. I just hope and pray the FedEx driver isn’t charged with homicide as he was defending himself, especially after he got shot! The guy deserves a frelling medal! He took another scumbag off the streets of Philly! Well done! 😀
