Dolton, Illinois

From the April 27, 2005 Chicago Tribune:
A pregnant woman who was shot twice in the abdomen before her husband fatally shot the gunman at a Dolton store was treated in an Olympia Fields hospital and her fetus is fine, police said Tuesday.

The 28-year-old woman, who police declined to identify, was shot just before 9 p.m. Monday in the Family Dollar, a discount store in Dolton, police said.

A spokeswoman for St. James Hospital and Health Centers said the woman was released Tuesday afternoon.

Details of the shooting remain unclear, but police believe a man who has not been identified entered the store with a .38-caliber pistol and had a confrontation with the employee.

Her husband, waiting outside to pick her up at the end of her workday, heard gunshots and ran into the store.

The husband struggled with the assailant for the pistol, wrangled it away and shot the gunman twice.
