Chicago cellphone store employee fights off a pair of armed robbers, WLS-TV, Chicago

Posted: 01.15.16 01:00 PM

A pair of men armed with handguns entered a T-Mobile store in Chicago, Ill. in an attempt to rob the establishment. An employee, and Right-to-Carry permit holder, responded to the threat by drawing a gun and firing at the robbers, striking both and causing them to flee. A short time later police caught up with the thieves when they sought medical treatment for their wounds.Store manager Neil Tadros expressed support for his employee following the incident, telling a local media outlet, “I think concealed carry is a great opportunity for managers, workers, employees to protect themselves in these cases. And our employee did a great job to protect themselves and the other employee.” The Chicago Tribune reported that Tadros had further praise for Illinois’ relatively new Right-to-Carry law, stating, “It’s a great thing to have to protect yourself even when you’re not in your business. If you’re out in the streets and someone is threatening your life, you can go out and protect yourself.”
