CHICAGO (CBS) — A man checking on his neighbor during a home invasion was shot in the arm on the city’s Southeast Side overnight.
It happened on 109th and Torrence in the South Deering neighborhood.
Police say two men and a woman kicked in the door of a second-floor apartment and pistol-whipped the 39-year old man who lives there.
They made off with a TV, a laptop, the victim’s cell phone, some cash and keys.
Media Affairs Officer Robert Perez says the victim’s 59-year-old downstairs neighbor heard the commotion and opened his door as the suspects were leaving.
One of the suspects shot him in the arm.
They were believed to be driving away in a 2000 red Chevy Impala.
The man who was shot was taken to Trinity Hospital in stable condition.
The robbery victim who was pistol-whipped did not want to be taken to the hospital.
