Two men were shot by the employee of a store they were trying to rob Sunday night in the West Rogers Park neighborhood on the North Side.
About 9:45 p.m., the men, ages 18 and 20, entered the store in the 7400 block of North Western and announced a robbery, according to Chicago Police. A male working at the store at the time then discharged his weapon, striking both men before they left the scene.
The men were taken into custody a short time later, along with a third male suspect, police said. The 18-year-old was shot in the right forearm and was taken to Swedish Covenant Hospital, where his condition was stabilized. The older man suffered a gunshot wound to the right shoulder and had his condition stabilized at Illinois Masonic Medical Center.
The store employee, who has a valid concealed carry license, suffered minor injuries in the incident, but refused medical attention, police said.
