PHILADELPHIA—Philadelphia police say a robbery suspect was shot in the arm by an officer.

Police Lt. Frank Vanore says the 20-year-old man who was shot pointed a gun at the officer first. He was listed in stable condition at a hospital.

It all began with Thursday's armed robbery of a real estate leasing office in Southwest Philadelphia. Police say the two men, who were dressed like Muslim women, then carjacked a van and drove off. They were pursued by an employee of the real estate company, who alerted police. The men abandoned the van and tried to flee on foot. That's when one man allegedly pointed a gun at an officer and the officer shot him.
