CHICAGO, ILLINOIS — Two armed carjackers were in for a surprise when their victim was armed with a handgun of his own. One of the carjackers is even worse off, because he wound up being shot in the groin by the armed citizen.
At 11:32 a.m. Wednesday, a 29-year-old man was standing outside his vehicle in the 5300 block of South Pulaski when he was approached by two males who demanded his keys, police said at the time. One of the males was armed with a handgun.
The victim, who has a valid concealed carry license, pulled out a weapon and fired, striking one of the suspects, police said.
Guillermo Parada, 25, and John Zuniga, 22, were both charged with armed robbery. In the photo above, that’s Parada on the left. He was the lucky recipient of the groin shot because of his stupidity.
Parada was sent to the hospital and was in stable condition.
Both are due back in court May 17th.
These two hopefully learned their lesson but sadly, that’s not usually the case. At the very least, let’s hope Parada learned his lesson after being shot. If word gets out that there are many more armed citizens than ever before who refuse to be victims, these thugs might start to find new ways of earning a living. You know, like getting a ******* job.
