(CBS) — Police in Calumet City say they don’t expect charges against a bakery owner who shot a robber seven times – after the robber threatened the owner Tuesday with what turned out to be a fake gun.
It was the Calumet City Bakery that robbers targeted, says Calumet City Police Chief Edward Gilmore. Gilmore says the robbers had what looked like a gun – but was actually a fake.
Two robbers pushed an employee toward the back of the bakery – and then accosted the owner – and Gilmore says that’s when the owner pulled out a gun and opened fire: firing seven times and hitting one of the robbers seven times.
Gilmore says the store owner had a valid firearm owner’s card.
