People were outside, sitting at restaurant tables on the sidewalk on 2nd Street close to Market Street on Sunday, when things got heated. According to witnesses, a man who had been on his bike started shouting at the diners about social distancing and the lack of mask wearing.
The man with the gun, according to multiple reports, is the owner of the Infusion Lounge in Old City. He told NBC 10 it was self-defense; the other guy was attacking him, and he was just protecting himself.
Councilmember Thomas tweeted, "After a weekend of too much gun violence, more guns is not the answer."
Police are investigating, and they want to talk to witnesses. Charges have not been filed.
