Chicago Robbery Thwarted By Lawful Gun Owner

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS — In Calumet Heights, a man has been fatally shot during an attempted robbery at an auto parts store, as reported by the Chicago Police Department.

The incident occurred at a store located on the 9100 block of South Stony Island Avenue when a male, aged between 30 and 40, allegedly entered the premises around 2:30 p.m. and demanded cash from the register, brandishing a firearm, according to WGN9.

The store manager, a lawful FOID cardholder, responded by drawing his own weapon and firing at the would-be robber, striking him.

The wounded man was transported to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where he was later pronounced dead.

Further details are currently unavailable as Area Two detectives continue their investigation into the matter.
