We’re surprised this hasn’t happened before (that we know of):
An unidentified gunman who shot and wounded a man during an attempted robbery in the Goose Island neighborhood Sunday morning was himself shot and killed moments later, Chicago police said.
The 28-year-old victim of the attempted robbery told police the assailant approached him and announced a robbery around 4:30 a.m. in the 1200 block of West Frye Street just east of the Kennedy Expressway, police said in a news notification. The robber then shot the victim in the leg.
The victim managed to run away after being wounded but told police he heard multiple gunshots fired as he fled, police said. Police officers responding to the scene found the suspected gunman suffering from numerous gunshot wounds to his body. He was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead, authorities said. The victim of the attempted robbery was taken to Stroger Hospital in good condition.
It remains unclear who shot the suspected gunman, who remained unidentified Sunday. Authorities said he didn’t appear to have a prior criminal history with Chicago police.
Frank Castle has arrived in Chicago?
Could this be the first of many? And how is CPD or HeyJackass.com going to count it?
