A 49-year-old man was shot after intruding into another man's backyard Tuesday in East Garfield Park on the West Side.

The shooting happened about 5 a.m. in the backyard of a residence in the 2900 block of West Walnut Avenue, Chicago police said. The man was shot in the left thigh by the homeowner, a 54-year-old man.

The intruder was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in good condition, police said.

The shooter has a valid concealed carry license but is currently in custody pending an investigation by Area Central detectives.

No charges have been filed at this time, police said.

Because of the 75-yo in Gurnee, are we going to see more media coverage of every "Homeowner shoots XXX" incident for a while?
The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants, and it provides the further advantage of giving the servants of tyranny a good conscience.

Glad they mentioned a CCL was in his possession. The writer should learn that one isn’t necessarily needed while in your own back yard. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
