The owner of a Northeast Philadelphia retail beer outlet who allegedly shot and wounded a 16-year-old boy accused of trashing his store has been charged with aggravated assault and related offenses, police said Thursday.


About 11:40 p.m. Monday, the teen entered Kenny’s Place Beer, located at 898 E. Sanger St. in Summerdale, and got into an argument with owner Hanglong Ing, according to police.

The boy then left and returned to the store with another teenage boy.


After the two juveniles unsuccessfully tried to buy beer, they trashed the store. The teens became enraged when the owner asked for identification, police have said, and started throwing items around the store. They then went outside and tossed boxes and trash.

Armed with a pistol, the store owner went outside and fired one shot, hitting the 16-year-old boy in both hands, police have said.

Ing, 26, was arrested Tuesday and posted bail Wednesday.





The wounded youth was taken by a private vehicle to Jeanes Hospital. He told officers that when he was inside the store, the owner pointed a gun at him and that when he and his friend left the store, the owner chased him to the rear alleyway, where he fired his gun. Police have recovered the gun.

Ing, of the 600 block of Mayfair Street in the city’s Crescentville section, was also charged with carrying a firearm without a license, possession of an instrument of crime, recklessly endangering another person and related offenses. An attorney was not listed for him on his court docket.
