IL: (Chicago) Man uses Pistol to Stop Carjacking, is Wounded

Update July 12, 2022, 12:50 p.m. — CPD has just released a community alert confirming that both crimes were committed by the same hijacking crew. According to the alert, the group consists of three to five Black males in their 20s wearing hooded sweatshirts and ski masks.

A man was shot during an armed robbery attempt in his Loop parking garage this morning, just minutes after carjackers pistol-whipped and carjacked a woman outside her Loop residence about four blocks away, according to Chicago police.

The shooting occurred as a 42-year-old man was pulling his $150,000 sports car into the Roosevelt Collection Lofts parking garage, 1135 South Delano Court. Police said five men stepped out of two cars that followed the victim to the garage, and they all pulled guns to rob him around 3:38 a.m.

But the victim is a concealed carry holder, and he engaged the crew in a shootout, according to a CPD statement. He suffered a gunshot wound to his right leg and a graze wound to his head. The robbers did not take his car. EMS took the victim to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in good condition.
