An armed man who attempted to rob a cell phone store Saturday night was fatally shot by an employee of the Humboldt Park business, police said.
At approximately 6:50 p.m., the unknown male offender walked into Metro PCS, 3239 W. Chicago Ave., presented a handgun and demanded property, according to law enforcement.
An employee, a 29-year-old man who holds a valid Concealed Carry License and Firearm Owner's Identification Card, produced his own handgun and fired shots toward the offender.
The offender sustained a gunshot wound to the chest and was transported to Stroger Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Two weapons were reported, police said, one from the employee and a second from the offender.
The incident remains under investigation by detectives.
