A concealed carry permit holder intervened and shot a Chicago gunman on July 4 after witnessing the assailant attack three people.
The Chicago Tribune reports the incident occurred “in a South Austin alley” just before 11 p.m. on Sunday.
The gunman shot three people, killing one. The two wounded individuals were both males. The deceased was identified as a 45-year-old female named Janina Ford.
The concealed permit holder, a 49-year-old man, witnessed the attack and shot the gunman twice, leaving him in serious condition.
Under the abysmal “leadership" of Democrat Mayor @LoriLightfoot, parts of Chicago have turned into war zones.
In a dangerous world, the Second Amendment is all you have.
