Concealed Carrier In Critical Condition After Being Shot Twice During Apparent Robbery Attempt

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS – A concealed carrier was shot twice in the chest before returning fire towards his assailant Saturday night. The possible robbery attempt, which occurred in the South Loop, left the victim hospitalized in critical condition.

According to law enforcement, the victim was a passenger in a car driven by his fiancée.  While on their way to a nightclub around 11:30 p.m., they stopped in the 2200 block of South Michigan Avenue so that he could relieve himself.

While the man was urinating in the alley, he became aware of another person walking up behind him. That man, who was armed, told the victim not to move. As the victim reached for his own gun, he was shot twice in the chest by the suspect. He was able to return fire, but it is unclear if the suspect was hit.

The suspect fled the scene in a silver sedan. The victim was able to return to his car, and his fiancée drove away. She first stopped at a nearby hotel and sought help from an employee, then drove to Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

Upon searching the victim’s car, police recovered two handguns belonging to him.  The victim, identified by police only as a 30-year-old, was listed in critical condition. Police have not made any arrests and the investigation is ongoing.

Six days earlier, Jacek Rudnicki, 44, was found by a passerby just after 5:00 a.m. lying in 24th Street near Michigan Avenue. Police found empty shell casings and what appeared to be shattered automotive glass near the victim. He had been shot twice in the back and was pronounced dead at the scene. Police later confirmed that his white 2015 Mercedes GLA had been stolen in an apparent carjacking.
