A 25 year old Chicago woman waiting for the bus at a Southside bus stop used her legally-owned, concealed carry firearm in defense of her life, early Tuesday morning.
While waiting at the local bus stop, the 25 year old woman clearly felt she had no choice but to pull out her concealed carry firearm and shoot an armed, 19 year old man in the neck who then ran away and collapsed a short while later. He made it about a block before his wound forced him to retire.
He was brought to the hospital, listed in serious condition where he was later declared dead from a single gunshot wound.
It’s apparent by the video that some sort of struggle ensued, though we don’t know what it looks like at this time due to a gap in the surveillance footage. However, the woman is seen getting off the ground at the end of the video, where it’s also heard that the 19 year old man took her concealed carry gun from her before he fled the scene of his attack.
The woman was able to land one shot before her gun was taken. That single gunshot would eventually kill her would be attacker. It is being reported that the man was armed, however we do not know what he was armed with at this time. Some reports say he was armed with a gun.
The woman received only minor injuries from the attack. You can see the video here:
