CHICAGO — A pit bull went after and helped capture a suspected armed robber in Chicago last week, authorities say.

Prosecutors said Marshon Hannah, 18, pulled a gun on a man in a gated property on the 4900 block of South Marshfield Avenue in the Back of the Yards neighborhood last Friday.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Hannah displayed a .38-caliber Colt revolver and made the victim turn over his belongings and a set of keys.

Friends of the homeowner said they saw what happened and turned a pit bull loose on Hannah. They said Hannah tried to shoot the dog, pulling the trigger several times, but the gun would not fire.

While unsuccessfully trying to escape the dog and the victim’s friends, Hannah tossed the weapon, but responding officers later found it at the scene, prosecutors said.

Hannah is being held for armed robbery after a judge denied him bail. He was dressed in hospital scrubs with a bandage wrapped around his right forearm when he appeared in court Sunday, according to the paper.

The high school senior was also on probation for a juvenile armed robbery conviction.

Well, it’s about time The Pitbull gets a positive story! It was positively discriminatory!

The high school senior was also on probation for a juvenile armed robbery conviction.

But he was in the process of turning his life around.

Hmmm, I wonder if anybody considered measures for interrupting the HS-to-Prison Pipeline that doesn't have negative effects on the rest of society?

“Hannah displayed a .38-caliber Colt revolver and made the victim turn over his belongings “

At least he had some style!

On probation for an armed robbery. And in Chicago they wring their hands and ask why all the mayhem.

I saw a photo of who I think is Marshon The Robber. It looked like a dirty tire had rolled over his face.

I wonder about that revolver. It says he pulled the trigger several times and it did not fire.. Did he not know he also needed bullets?

Honor student, turning his life around.... but this one likely won't end up in the Juvenile Court system, this time.

Is it the photo in post 8?

That face looks like it’s been chewed on for a while by a pitbull.

Ahhh,bound for glory indeed. Starting his career early before he’s even out of school.

These guys have the deadest eyes.

If this took place in California, it might be he did not have any micro-stamped ID shell casings and so did not want to break the law by using illegal bullets.

When a child’s throat is crushed by a pit bull, the sound sends a thrill up the spine of every pit bull owner.

Chances are he acquired the revolver from a street vendor.

It might have been missing a firing pin.

That’s the photo, but the wounds don’t look fresh.
Maybe the pic was taken hours later, after he was, as they call it ‘booked’.

Yes. He slipped and fell on his face while alone in his jail cell.
