One of the robbers demanded money, but when the woman said they didn’t have any, he opened fire.

the younger woman was shot in the right foot, while the older woman suffered a graze wound to the left leg, police said. They were both taken to Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston, where their conditions were stabilized.
