Chicago Store Employee Puts Up Bigger Fight Than Robbers Were Expecting

Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation, yet, has some of the highest gun deaths in the nation, as well. A Chicago store employee knows the statistics all too well.

According to The Chicago Tribune, two men armed with handguns entered a Calumet Heights T-Mobile store. Around 11 a.m., they threatened robbery, and demanded cash. Although a store employee decided not to let them get away with it.

He was a Concealed Carry License holder in Illinois. Instead of pulling out the cash, he pulled out a gun. He then fired multiple times and hit the armed robbers, which, sent them to a local area hospital.

The robbers' names have not been released, but they are a 35-year-old who suffered from gunshot wounds to the left arm and groin area and a 24-year-old who was shot in the left arm and abdomen.

Robbery charges are still pending as they are currently in the hospital with serious injuries.

Neil Tadros, district manager for T-Mobile, said “Thank God for concealed carry! A lot of people think they can go out and rob people without anyone defending themselves. It’s a great thing to have to protect yourself, even when you’re not in your business. If you’re out in the streets and someone is threatening your life, you can go out and protect yourself.”
