Burglar Shot By Concealed Carry Owner

A robbery was thwarted in Chicago Saturday night when a patron with a concealed carry license shot and killed an armed robber.

Citing preliminary information, police said a man walked into a store at around 7:00 p.m., and announced a robbery to an employee working behind the counter, displaying a handgun. Another employee came from the back of the store and the gunman pointed his weapon at her, police said.

He then made her go to the back of the store, which also serves as a currency exchange. After that, a customer, who was also inside the business, pulled out a gun and opened fire at the robber, killing him. Police said the shooter has a valid concealed carry license and a valid firearm owner’s identification card.
