A man has died after he was shot by a concealed carry holder he tried to rob on Christmas Eve in the South Loop, according to Chicago police.

Corey Haggard, 37, was shot around 6:15 p.m. Sunday at a strip mall in the 1200 block of South Jefferson Street, police said. He died at 11:37 p.m. on Monday at Stroger Hospital, according to the medical examiner.

Police said Haggard went up to a 31-year-old man who was leaving a store, announced a robbery and pulled out a gun. The other man also pulled out a gun and fired, hitting Haggard in the chest.

Police said the 31-year-old man had a valid license from Indiana to carry a concealed weapon.

Haggard had lived in the 3400 block of West 12th Place in the Lawndale neighborhood.

Ed. The editors at Second City Cop put it this way:

"While we don't envy the position that the victim is currently in (with Illinois not recognizing CCL's from other states), this may ultimately be a good thing.

Every state in the union recognizes an inherent Right to self-defense when confronted by deadly force. The Offender/Assailant (Haggard) was armed and threatened to use a gun to commit a forcible felony. That would logically eliminate any high-level charges for the victim....logically in a state other than lib-tarded Illinois. We can see Foxxx and her handlers attempting to push something worse (which will cost Illinois/County taxpayers dearly should it go forward), but we can't see it sticking. We can also see the Department brass attempting to keep the gun for whatever reason their masters come up with.

Hopefully, the NRA gets involved - Rahm is used to writing the NRA big checks after all."

Ed.  Kim Foxx is Chicago's States Attorney. She is infamous for reducing felony charges to misdemeanors in order to prove how little crime there is in the Windy City!

Rahm, of course, is Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. A longtime friend of Barack, Rahm steals with both hands while governing from the far left.
