CHICAGO (WLS) -- Three teenagers were injured on the West Side early Monday morning when a concealed carry license holder opened fire on would-be robbers, Chicago police said.
A 56-year-old man was in his vehicle in the 4700-block of West Arthington Street in Lawndale just before 6 a.m., when a vehicle with three male teenagers approached, CPD said.
