A 26-year-old rideshare driver with a concealed carry permit shot two alleged robbers in Chicago Saturday just after 1:00 a.m.
The driver had just dropped off a passenger when a man and woman approached, at least one of whom was armed, CBS News reported.
The couple allegedly took the driver’s cell phone, then “fired shots” as they attempted to flee the scene.
The rideshare driver pulled his own gun and returned fire, “striking the 20-year-old man in the leg and grazing the 18-year-old woman in the arm.”
ABC 7 noted that the woman’s wound was just a graze and she refused medical treatment. The man was transported to a hospital in good condition.
The driver was not injured in the exchange of gunfire.
