A woman who was hiding shot a gunman in the head after he tried to get into her vehicle on Chicago’s south side early Wednesday morning. WFLD-TV reported.
what are the details
The 23-year-old woman was in her parked car at around 2 a.m. on the 1300 block of East 89th Street in the Calumet Heights neighborhood when four men got out of a black sedan and one of them tried to get into her car while holding a pistol , police said at the station.
The woman then shot the gunman once in the head, police told WFLD, prompting the gunman to run out of the vehicle.
One of the men he was with began shooting at the woman and once punched her in the arm, station police said.
What happened next?
Paramedics took the gunman who was shot to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where he was listed in critical condition, police added to WFLD.
The woman was taken to Trinity Hospital, where she was listed in good condition, the ward said.
The other three suspects fled the scene and are not in custody, WFLD reported, adding that detectives are investigating.
One more thing?
While the woman did not escape completely unscathed in this incident, surely things could have been worse had she not exercised her Second Amendment rights.
In a city filled to the brim with crooks using illegal guns, it’s also quite remarkable that covert carriers in Chicago have had numerous successes in protecting themselves and others from the worst scenarios. Here’s a sample from this year only:
- In September, gunmen outside a Chicago home opened fire on partygoers and shot a 13-year-old boy in the head, but the victim’s 21-year-old cousin — a concealed carry license holder — drew his gun and then fired back in front of the die gunmen fled.
- Also in September, a gunman shot dead a gunman 13-year-old boy in Chicago when the boy allegedly broke into the undercover carrier’s car.
- In July, a woman with a concealed carry license shot a group of men who were pointing guns at her as they tried to steal her car in Chicago – and a 13-year-old man who was with the would-be thieves was shot dead .
- In February, a knife-wielding man approached an undercover porter in a Chicago alley, who shot the man with the knife once in the leg. Police eventually used a taser on the suspect and arrested him.
