Oak Park Robbery Victim Shoots Robber

Oak Park, Illinois

From December 22, 2008 Chicago Breaking News:

Oak Park police said a would-be armed robber got more than he bargained for when he attempted to steal a leather jacket from another man in the near-west suburb Sunday night.

The owner of the leather jacket, after being approached, shot the 25-year-old in the face, the arm and the pelvis near North Lombard and North Avenues, police said.

The man underwent surgery for his wounds Sunday night at Stroger Hospital in Chicago and is expected to survive, Cmdr. Clement Harbour said.

Police are seeking the gunman, and no charges have been filed in the case as of Monday, Harbour said.
