A 60-year-old homeowner protected his home and himself this past Saturday on October 7 in the shooting ravaged city of Chicago. The Chicago Sun-Times posted a story about the incident on their website.
Per the Chicago Sun-Times story, the incident occurred at around 10:45 pm local time at a residence in Bronzeville. Bronzeville is located on the South Side of Chicago. Chicago Police said that the residence is in the 4500 block of South St. Lawrence.
A 44-year-old male suspect forced his way into the residence with a crowbar. That’s when the 60-year-old homeowner shot the suspect. Police said that after being shot, the suspect fled to a vehicle. The vehicle transported the suspect to Mercy Hospital.
The suspect was expected to transfer to Stroger Hospital. He is listed as being in critical condition.
After questioning the homeowner, Chicago Police found that he had a valid Firearm Owners ID (FOID) card. On Sunday, police were expected to charge the suspect with breaking and entering.
As a Brit living and working in the USA, her views on gun ownership and the second amendment have evolved over the years, allowing her to fully understand both sides of the gun control debate and she regularly speaks on the matter to help others understand why she feels the second amendment must be protected and why she chooses to be an advocate for the shooting sports.
