Carjacker Gets A Taste Of His Own Medicine When Victim Attacks Back!

In a dramatic incident that unfolded on Sunday evening outside a Chicago mall, two would-be carjackers found themselves on the receiving end of their own violent intentions. However, they had picked the wrong victim—a concealed carrier who was armed and ready to protect himself. The courageous individual, identified as a valid Firearm Owner’s Identification Card and concealed carry license holder, quickly turned the tables on the assailants, pulling out his own firearm and returning fire.

The incident occurred outside the Ross clothing store at the Ford City Mall on the city’s southwest side, an area known for its bustling shopping centers. Two suspects, later identified as 21-year-old Anton Cheeks and 18-year-old Travell Quadir Deal, approached the 24-year-old victim. Without warning, one of the suspects brandished a handgun and opened fire, clearly intending to carry out a carjacking.

Thankfully, the victim’s quick thinking and preparedness saved him from becoming another statistic of violent crime. In a courageous act of self-defense, he skillfully returned fire, hitting one of the suspects in the thigh. The injured suspect’s wounds were non-life-threatening but served as a stark reminder that criminals do not always have the upper hand when confronted by law-abiding citizens exercising their right to self-protection.

The swift response from both the victim and law enforcement resulted in the apprehension of the two suspects. Anton Cheeks and Travell Quadir Deal were arrested later that same evening. Both now face charges of attempted vehicular carjacking and are scheduled to appear in bond court on Tuesday.

This incident serves as a powerful reminder of the importance of responsible gun ownership and the right to self-defense. While critics may argue against the concept of concealed carry, incidents like these demonstrate that armed citizens can act as a deterrent to criminals and potentially save lives.
