Chicago is a mess – overrun with violence, poverty, hopelessness, and poor leadership from the top.
And while Mayor Lightfoot doesn’t seem to want to do much about the crime situation, the criminals are handing out their own street justice – even if it is “accidental.”
A bad guy, hell-bent on robbing a house in Chicago’s “Jeffrey Manor” neighborhood is alleged to have accidentally shot and killed his accomplice on Tuesday night at around 11 p.m.
The resident called out for help and two other men–a 24-year-old and a 25-year-old–came running and a physical struggle ensued.
One of the alleged intruder’s guns discharged during the struggle, shooting the other alleged intruder in the chest.
ABC 7 Chicago reported that A 49-year-old man heard a loud disturbance at his front door just after 11 p.m. in the 9500-block of South Calhoun Avenue in the Jeffrey Manor neighborhood, Chicago police said. When he went to investigate, two masked, armed individuals forced their way inside, according to CPD.
The man shouted for help, and two other men, ages 25 and 24, heard the commotion from the basement and went upstairs.
Chicago police said the three men in the home fought with the two home invaders, and during the scuffle, shots were fired from one of the home invader’s weapons.
One of the suspects was shot in the chest and died at the scene, according to CPD.
The 25-year-old man from the home was shot in the arm but was considered stable. The 24-year-old man from inside the home took him to Trinity Hospital, where he is listed in good condition, Chicago police said.
Area Two detectives are searching for the other suspect and investigating the motive behind the break-in.
