The Chicago man with a concealed carry license who shot and killed an attempted robber will likely not face charges, police announced Sunday night.
Police were in the process of completing their investigation, the Chicago Tribune reported.
A masked man walked into a store and currency exchange Saturday evening on the city’s southwest side, displayed a handgun and announced a robbery to an employee, police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said. The gunman then pointed his weapon at another employee and forced her to the back of the store.
The armed customer then shot and killed the man, identified Sunday by the Cook County medical examiner’s office as 55-year-old Reginald Gildersleeve. Other details about Gildersleeve weren’t released.
Gildersleeve’s stepson cast doubt on the police account, the Tribune reports. “Something doesn’t seem right,” Igbinosa Oronsaye said, adding, “Reggie doesn’t even own a gun. He couldn’t own a gun if he wanted to.”
