Two Bridgeview, Illinois, brothers confronted and shot a robbery suspect Tuesday night after he allegedly tried to rob the business at which one of the brothers worked.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports the alleged robber entered a store in Justice, Illinois, around 6:15 p.m. Tuesday, only to have the robbery “foiled by the clerk.”

The Patch reports the clerk then called his brother, a concealed carry permit holder who was in the area. The two brothers chased the robbery suspect into Bridgeview, Illinois, confronted him, and got involved in a shootout. The suspect was struck by a bullet and hospitalized.

The Sun-Times indicated Bridgeview spokesman Ray Hanania said the suspect will face charges but the brothers “will not.”
