CHICAGO: Woman with concealed carry FIRES at thieves trying to steal her car and nails one in the neck…

A woman in Chicago confronted a group of thieves trying to steal her car and ended up using her concealed carry firearm to defend herself after they pulled a gun on her.

She shot one of the thieves in the neck while the others ran off.

Here’s more via CBS News:

Police said a woman shot and wounded a 13-year-old boy who was part of a group that tried to break into her car, and then pointed a gun at her, in Hyde Park Friday night.

At 7:58 p.m., four to five males were trying to break into a parked car in the 1100 block of East 52nd Street, police said.

The 34-year-old woman who owned the car confronted the would-be thieves, at which point one of them took out a gun and pointed it at her, police said.

The woman – who has a concealed carry license – fired her own gun and hit one of the would-be thieves, police said. The would-be thief, a 13-year-old boy, was struck in the neck and was taken to the University of Chicago’s Comer Children’s Hospital in fair condition.

The other offenders ran off, and no weapon was recovered, police said. No one else was injured.

Area One detectives are investigating.

This is one of those times I wish we had surveillance video because I would like to have seen how that went down.

I do love that this woman didn’t just become another victim of grand theft auto. She used her concealed carry firearm and it worked. That’s the way it should be.

I suppose she could have easily gotten into a firefight, but more times than not when bullets start flying from the ‘good guys’ the thieves and thugs start running.

I just hope the corrupt DA up there respects what she did and doesn’t try to find some way of prosecuting her for defending herself.
