Concealed Carrier Shoots Intruder Twice In Chest, Who Is Currently In Serious Condition

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS — A recent home invasion escalated to a self-defensive shooting, with the homeowner exercising his right to defend his residence, shooting the intruder twice in the chest. The homeowner possessed both a valid Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) card and a Concealed Carry License (CCL). The wounded suspect was hospitalized in serious condition, with charges pending.

The incident highlighted the ongoing increase in Chicago residents seeking legal gun ownership and training. Despite a decline from the historic high of nearly 500,000 FOID applications recorded in 2020, the demand for firearm education remains significant. In response to this sustained interest, Illinois State Police have expedited the application process, reducing wait times to as few as three to four business days.

Presently, Cook County is home to nearly 750,000 FOID card holders, contributing to the state’s total of approximately 2.4 million card holders.
