CHICAGO, IL — A man was shot in the arm in the defense of a church he was hired to guard by a burglar dead-set on making a quick buck on hallowed ground, WGN9 reports.
The burglar was able to wound the church’s defender, but he himself narrowly got out of the church alive.
As WGN9 reports:
It happened just after 8 p.m. Wednesday near a church on the 4400 block of West Maypole in West Garfield Park.
Police said a 27-year-old gunman burst into the Maypole Avenue Church of Christ and announced a robbery. He was immediately confronted by a 57-year-old security guard, who is a concealed carry cardholder. The two exchanged gunfire, ending with the offender critically injured with multiple gunshots to the chest. He remains in critical condition at Stroger Hospital.
The security guard suffered a single bullet wound to the left arm and is expected to recover. It is unknown if anything is missing from the church.
