Chicago Store Employee Shoots Two Robbers

posted on November 30, 2016

When two armed men walked into a store in the West Ridge section of northern Chicago shortly before 1:00 a.m. Monday morning and announced a robbery, a 21-year-old store employee—who was also a Right-to-Carry permit holder—shot both of them, sending them to the hospital and then to jail, police told DNAInfo.com.

One robber, an 18-year-old, was shot in the right forearm, and the other, who is 20, was shot in the right shoulder. A third man, who was unharmed, was arrested in connection with the incident, police said. The store employee sustained minor injuries in the confrontation, for which he was treated at the scene. 

About 15 minutes earlier, less than two miles away, two armed men attempted to rob a pair of women, but when the women said they had no cash, one of the men started shooting, striking a 23-year-old woman in her right foot and a 28-year-old women in her left leg. Police are still working to determine whether the two robberies are connected.
