A tow-truck driver responded to a crash involving a bus and multiple cars in Chicago, Ill., on Oct. 3. According to reports, more than a dozen people had exited their vehicles when a man in a white Dodge Durango began firing at them for unknown reasons, striking the bus driver in the leg. The tow-truck driver, who had a concealed-carry permit, ducked behind a vehicle and drew his own firearm, then returned fire. The assailant fled the scene after the armed citizen had fired two shots.
