Illinois Self-Defense: Would-be armed robbers shot by Chicago business owner :: 07/06/2018

Two armed men picked the wrong grocery store to rob in Chicago’s South Side Englewood this week.

Chicago Police say the men entered A&J Foods on West 75th Street around 7 p.m. Tuesday, pulled weapons, and tried to rob the store. Each, in turn, received gunshot wounds from an armed business owner and fled the scene, The Chicago Sun-Times reported.

The men, 21 and 29 years old, appeared at St. Bernard Hospital to receive treatment for wounds to the abdomen and arm, respectively. The younger man was listed in serious condition and was subsequently transferred to Stroger Hospital.

The incident comes as Chicago Police have released statistics for the first half of the year that show overall crime numbers are down in the Windy City by some 11 percent amid a bump in police hiring and increased use of surveillance cameras. Included with the numbers is that, while Chicago has seen 252 homicides so far in 2018, that figure is down 79 when compared to the first half of 2017.
