PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — A Police officer shot a person who was trying to rob a 7-11 store in Bucks County on Thursday night.

Authorities say the suspect came into the store on North Pine Street in Langhorne around 9:45 p.m. with plans to rob the place. An officer assigned to watch the store went in to try arresting the robber. That's when the shooting happened. 

The suspect was taken to an area hospital. The suspect's condition isn't known at this time. The officer was not hurt. 

This particular 7-11 had been robbed three times in recent weeks, and authorities in Bucks County put together a task force to put an end to it with the help of the FBI. 

No other details have been released yet. The Bucks District Attorney's office is expected to reelase more information later Friday.
