In the dangerous neighborhood of south-side Chicago, a T-Mobile employee shot two armed robbers that entered his store looking to jack phones and money on Wednesday.
This store on the 2000-block of East 95th St. has been robbed several times in the last month but these thugs picked the wrong day.
They entered the store pretending to be shoppers before pulling guns. As one employee ran to the back, another pulled out his legal concealed firearm and fired back at the robbers.
He hit one in the groin and the arm, and the other in the abdomen and the arm. He then chased them out of the store while giving police a description of the robbery.
Neil Tadros, the store manager, said:
“I think concealed carry is a great opportunity for managers, workers, employees to protect themselves in these cases. And our employee did a great job to protect themselves and the other employee.”
From ABC Chicago:
Two robbery suspects were shot by an employee at a cell phone store in the Jeffrey Manor neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side.
The T-Mobile store in the 2000-block of East 95th St. was left riddled with bullet holes. If not for the employee carrying a weapon with a concealed carry license, the manager of the store says he might be telling a different story.
“I think concealed carry is a great opportunity for managers, workers, employees to protect themselves in these cases. And our employee did a great job to protect themselves and the other employee,” said Neil Tadros, store manager.
