Last week, four armed men tried to steal a car from a 23-year-old woman on the South Side of Chicago. The woman, who had a permit to carry a gun, defended herself.
The woman, who has not been named, was sitting in her car near 89th Street and Kenwood Avenue in the Calumet Heights neighborhood on Wednesday just after 2 a.m. when four men got out of a black sedan, according to a local CBS station.
When one of the men tried to open the door of her car while holding a gun, the woman shot him in the head and ran away from the car.
She was shot in the left arm by one of the other men, and she was taken to Advocate Trinity Hospital in fair shape.
The man she shot in the head is said to be in critical condition at the University of Chicago Medical Center. However, the woman’s other three attackers got away.
Fox News Digital asked the Chicago Police Department for a comment, but they didn’t answer immediately.
In the last year, crime has gone up in the Windy City, and in 2021, there will be more homicides than ever before in the last 25 years.
According to Chicago police records, the number of robberies increased by 15% in 2022. Since 2020 and 2019, the number of holdups has gone up 11%, but they were down 10% in 2018.
On Friday morning, police told Fox News Digital that there were seven carjackings on Chicago’s West Side in just one hour.
Some of the alleged carjackings happened on different streets, and the victims were held at gunpoint.
This month, a person with a permit to carry a gun on their person stopped an attempted robbery. During the fight that followed, the suspect and a grocery store clerk both died.
Fox station WFLD in Chicago said that Nicholas Williams, who is 24 years old, tried to rob the El Barakah Supermarket on 73rd Street in the South Shore at about 6:20 p.m.
