Philadelphia Police are investigating an aggravated assault that took place outside of a parking garage along Ridge Avenue early last Thursday morning.

Police say a man was walking from the garage at 4055 Ridge Avenue at 2:30 a.m. when he was approached by two black males wearing paintball masks and holding black handguns.

The man waking out of the garage pulled out a gun, which he had a permit to carry, and began to shoot at the men. 

The two suspects, who fled the scene unscathed on foot, are both described as black males, 5’7″ to 5’8″ in height with slim builds. Both men wore paintball masks and hooded sweatshirts at the time of the incident.
