Chicago Workers Fighting Back Against Crime

Can you hear me now? That seems to be the attitude of Chicago employees as, for the second time in a week, a worker used a gun in self-defense. 

Late Wednesday morning, two men drew guns as they entered a T-Mobile store. In return, an employee drew his own firearm and shot at the men, who fled the store and then drove themselves to a hospital. Both were treated for gunshot wounds—one man suffered a gunshot wound to his left arm and groin, and the other was shot in the abdomen and left arm. 

Charges are pending as the investigation continues. A T-Mobile regional manager said the company allows its employees with concealed-carry licenses to have guns at work. 

This foiled attempt comes on the heels of an incident on Saturday where a liquor store employee shot and killed two teens as they tried to rob the store.
