Would-be robber killed in restaurant shooting

A robbery attempt turned deadly Thursday night after a man entered a South Side restaurant and exchanged gunfire with the owner, killing the would-be robber and critically wounding the owner, police said.

The shooting in the 8200 block of South Stony Island Avenue occurred across the street from a market where a security guard was killed Wednesday night, said Capt. Richard Johnson of the South Chicago District.

The would-be robber was holding two guns as he entered the restaurant at 8:40 p.m., at which point the owner pulled out a gun and they exchanged shots, Johnson said. The would-be robber died after leaving the store, Johnson said. The owner, who was shot twice in the chest, was in critical condition at Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn..
