Gosh, do you think Chicago’s burgeoning criminal class will start to get the message? . . . Man dies after shot by concealed carry holder during robbery in South Loop, police say
A man has died after he was shot by a concealed carry holder he tried to rob on Christmas Eve in the South Loop, according to Chicago police.
Corey Haggard, 37, was shot around 6:15 p.m. Sunday at a strip mall in the 1200 block of South Jefferson Street, police said. He died at 11:37 p.m. on Monday at Stroger Hospital, according to the medical examiner.
The only problem here: the un-named concealed carrier’s license was issued in Indiana. According to USA Carry’s handy-dandy reciprocity map, Illinois doesn’t recognize Indiana permits. As a matter of fact, Illinois doesn’t recognize any other state’s CCW permit…a situation that may very well change soon. We’ll be watching to see if the robbery victim will be charged with a crime in the shooting.
