Armed robber picks wrong woman at Chicago bus stop (VIDEOS)

Police say the suspect was found a block away with a gun shot wound to the neck, fatally shot by a woman acting in self-defense.

Local media in Chicago report that the unidentified 25-year-old woman was waiting at a bus stop at 103rd and Wallace in the Fernwood neighborhood early Tuesday morning when 19-year-old Laavion Goings, armed with a handgun, tried to rob her.

A concealed carry permit holder, the woman drew her own gun and shot the man, who fled the scene and was later declared dead at an area hospital. Goings, who was shot one time according to the Chicago Sun-Times, had reportedly “had contact” with police in the past.
