The Armed Citizen® July 5, 2019

While driving at 3 a.m. around the Chicago Loop, a Volkswagen rear-ended a BMW. The BMW owner exited his vehicle to look at the damage on the back of his car and returned to the driver’s side to retrieve his cell phone. While his back was turned, the man didn’t see the other driver, armed with a gun, approach and push him into the BMW in an attempted carjacking. The carjacker demanded the keys, and a struggle ensued. The BMW driver retrieved his concealed firearm from the car’s interior and shot the would-be carjacker in the head. The wounded man was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. Police were investigating. Investigators said they located both guns at the scene and could not find any known connection between either driver. (chicagotribune.com, Chicago, Ill. 4/26/19)
