IL: Church Volunteer Security in Gunfight with Armed Robbery Suspect

The news reported that the "Security Guard" owned his firearm legally and had a concealed carry permit". Odds are he was a volunteer. If he had been a paid and licensed security guard, it would have been noted.

Police said a 27-year-old gunman burst into the Maypole Avenue Church of Christ and announced a robbery. He was immediately confronted by a 57-year-old security guard, who is a concealed carry cardholder.

The two exchanged gunfire, ending with the offender critically injured with multiple gunshots to the chest. He remains in critical condition at Stroger Hospital.

The security guard suffered a single bullet wound to the left arm and is expected to recover.
