CHICAGO, ILLINOIS — A 47-year-old man opened fire on a vehicle in a seemingly random attack on Sunday afternoon, and luckily he missed his targets.

When the two occupants realized they were invited to a gun fight, both pulled out their own firearms and shot at their attacker.
They landed shots, striking the 47-year-old man in the abdomen, torso and leg. He was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
Neither of the vehicle occupants were injured.

These two armed citizens were up against bad odds, but were able to successfully defend themselves against this man looking to do them serious harm.
Maintaining that situational awareness, having escape routes when driving, and having easy access to your firearm are all things to keep in mind for a successful self-defensive situation such as this.
