PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Philadelphia police say a store owner shot a man in what may have been an attempted armed robbery, but investigators are still trying to piece together the incident.

Police say the victim was found with a leg wound sometime about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Police eventually determined the man was shot inside a nearby store. The owner reportedly told police the same man came into the store earlier in the day threatening to kill him and his family. Police say the store owner told them he shot the man when he returned Wednesday night and appeared to be reaching toward his waist.

Police say the wounded man was in stable condition at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center.
