Two people were wounded — one of them critically — in an exchange of gunfire during an attempted robbery late Thursday in Englewood.
Just after 10 p.m., a 24-year-old man was walking with a woman in the 7400 block of South Morgan when two other people walked up with a gun and announced a robbery, according to Chicago Police.
The 24-year-old, a concealed carry permit holder, pulled out a gun, as did one of the attempted robbers, a 17-year-old boy, police said.
They opened fire on each other, with the teen shot in the chest and the man in the leg, police said.
Both were taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where the teen was listed in critical condition. The man’s condition stabilized, police said.
