A Gresham man fired on a group of people leaving a party, only to be shot himself by one of the victims, a military service member with a concealed carry permit, authorities said.

The military member and three others were leaving a party Friday night in the 11700 block of South Union Avenue in West Pullman, Assistant State’s Attorney Mary Hain said during a court hearing Sunday.

**As Mickiel fired at the victims’ vehicle, the military member retrieved his gun and took cover near the vehicle’s front fender....The military service member fired two shots and struck Mickiel twice, she said.**

Good military training.

“Mickiel, of the 7600 block of South Honore Street, was transported to Advocate Christ in critical condition,”

Indeed. Critical is as good enough given 3:1

Nobody with a gun ever stopped a bad guy with a gun. There has to be an error in this reporting.

Why do I have the feeling that this being Illinois they will still try to charge him with something for defending himself?

Just to keep things in perspective:

From a comment at the article: “Other Chicago Headline

82 shot 14 killed over the weekend in gun free Chicago”

Oh indeed. But having formerly lived in the Peoples Republic of Illinois where you have to have FOID card to own a gun anywhere in the state and concealed carry was verbotten.......

Just seeing any positive press especially in the Chicago Tribune is simply STUNNING.

They just started issuing permits less than a year ago.

Rumor has it that with the draw down in Afghanistan the military services are going to send their combat surgeons and medics to Chicago hospitals for training for gunshot wounds.

A friend of mine was an anesthesiologist for the Navy. It’s already common practice to take military interns/residents to big city hospitals for trauma and gunshot training. He did his training in DC and Baltimore, and trained others in LA.
