A Temple University student from Bucks County was wounded early Monday in a shootout with a teenage robber. 21-year-old Robert Eells of Chalfont is hospitalized in fair condition. Police say he and a friend were outside his off-campus apartment on Twelfth Street in North Philadelphia when three teenage boys approached them and demanded money. When they fired a gun at him, he pulled his own gun and fired back. He had a permit to carry the gun, and doctors expect him to recover fully. The 15-year-old shooter is also hospitalized and facing charges for robbery, assault and other offenses.
