This is yet another story which proves that theft is never a good idea, especially if the person your stealing from is packing heat.
According to reports, a man in Chicago went on a hot pursuit after two teenagers when they stole his vehicle.
The chase ended with the man shooting both teenagers, killing one.
One of two Carol Stream teenagers who had allegedly stolen a black Chevrolet sedan was shot dead by the vehicle’s owner who’d been giving chase after finding his car early Sunday in Volo, investigators said.
Spotted near Route 12 and Route 120, the teens drove off with the Chevy’s owner in pursuit in another vehicle, making it about a mile, officials said. Then, when the sedan ran out of gas in a desolate, sparsely populated area in the 30400 block of Route 12 in Volo about 3 a.m., the teenagers were confronted by the Chevy’s owner, and a fatal struggle began in a deserted parking lot, according to the Lake County sheriff’s office.
Sgt. Chris Covelli said detectives Sunday were still trying to find out how the 35-year-old Round Lake Beach man — who had reported his 2012 Chevrolet sedan stolen from his Fairfield Road home Dec. 30 — spotted the car in Volo in the middle of the night. It wasn’t immediately clear whether he located it by coincidence, if he had a tracking system onboard or if he’d left some type of electronics in the car he could trace.
The 35-year-old, who is not being named because he has not been charged with a crime, called 911 when he and the two 17-year-old boys got into a confrontation and physical fight, Covelli said. When it was over, both teenagers were suffering from gunshot wounds.
“The caller was the 35-year-old, dispatchers could hear the physical altercation in the background,” Covelli wrote in an email.
One of the three was armed with a handgun, although detectives were not yet sure to whom the gun belonged, where he’d been carrying it or when or why he drew it. Covelli said it was too soon to say whether the gun owner had a firearm owner’s identification card or a concealed carry license.
It’s unfortunate that one of these young people has lost their lives…
But these are the serious consequences of their poor actions.
