Chicago CCL Holder Shoots Armed Robber

While the city’s stringent gun laws do their utmost to keep guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens, some Chicago residents do legally carry concealed firearms these days. Such an armed citizen shut down an armed robbery in progress in a corner store on Saturday night. 

The Chicago Tribune reports that a man walked up to the counter and showed a handgun to the employee at the register, announcing his intention to rob the establishment. He then pointed his firearm at a female employee who was walking up from the back of the store and ushered her back to the area she had come from. Likely fearing for the employee’s life, a customer drew his concealed fun and fired, killing the suspect.

Police confirmed that the armed citizen had the proper credentials to carry a concealed firearm inside the city.
