Philadelphia pizza worker’s teen son shoots robbery suspect in the face

The teenaged son of a Philadelphia pizza shop worker foiled a robbery attempt when he shot an armed suspect in the face.  

Three men attempted to rob a CVS Thursday at around 9:30 p.m. in the Spring Garden section of the city, but they fled when they could not open the cash register. One of the men peeled off and entered the Bold Pizza Shop down the street.
