CBS Chicago reports that a 71-year-old man with a concealed carry permit defended his neighbor’s home last week. It was around 10:45 a.m. on Thursday, October 18, when the man spotted the break-in attempt in progress. He shot the suspect in the hand, after which the suspect was arrested and taken to the hospital in non-critical condition. (This story was incorrectly reported by other sources as a defense of the man’s own home, but we’ve confirmed the police report with CBS news correspondent Jim Williams).
Darryl Washington, another neighbor, said that he had no problem with what happened:
“The two neighbors could be very close friends, and so they’re looking out for one another – I’m not mad at them.”
