The would-be robber tries to rob a Chicago auto parts store, the manager shoots him: cop

A seemingly lovely man with a gun distracts the armed robber. A store manager in Chicago shot and killed a would-be-armed robber.

On Saturday, the suspected robber entered the O’Reilly auto parts store in Chicago’s Calumet Heights neighborhood. The man, who is believed to be between the ages of 30 and 40, fired a gun and demanded the manager hand over money from the store’s cash register, according to Chicago police.

The store manager, who police said was the holder of a valid Firearms Owner Identification (FOID) card, shot the suspected burglars to thwart the reported crime.

The suspect was taken to the University of Chicago Hospital in critical condition but later died of his injuries, police said.

Video footage from the WFLD shows several bullet holes in O’Reilly’s auto parts store. The footage also shows a gun near the store’s entrance.

Police have yet to identify the suspect who died.

Several robberies have been recently botched by a nice guy with a gun.

Last week, a Family Dollar employee shot and killed a suspected shoplifter who had beaten him. The employee was charged with attempted murder.

Last month, an undercover porter in Detroit shot a gunman who had threatened his friend outside a deli dead.

A Connecticut clothing store employee shot and killed a suspected shoplifter in February.

In January, a gas station attendant shot and killed a gunman in Arizona. The officer was not charged with the shooting.
