Carjackers’ Decision to Choose Vehicle Owner with Concealed Carry Turns out to be Painful Miscalculation
A pair of men — one of them armed — approached a car owner standing outside his vehicle on the southwest side of Chicago in broad daylight May 10 and demanded his keys.
But police told the Chicago Tribune the victim wouldn’t hand over his keys.
See, he’s a concealed carry license holder, police told the paper — and he pulled out his own gun and started firing.
The vehicle owner shot one of the perps “in the groin area,” the Tribune reported. The other one took off running but was arrested shortly thereafter, the paper said.
The wounded suspect, 25, was taken to a hospital where he was listed in good condition, Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford told the Tribune. The other perp’s age is unknown, the paper said.
