Armed woman takes out thug at Chicago bus stop

Rate this post

From Fox News: A 25-year-old woman with a concealed carry license shot and killed the man trying to rob her at gunpoint near a Chicago bus station Tuesday morning, police said — noting she needed just a single shot to take down the would-be robber.

The unidentified woman was at the bus stop in Chicago’s Fernwood neighborhood just after 6 a.m. when the man, identified as 19-year-old Laavion Goings, pulled a gun and attempted to rob her, WLS reported. Surveillance video from a nearby convenience store showed the woman waiting at the stop and Goings approaching her and aiming his gun, officials said.

The woman, however, was prepared. She pulled out her own weapon and shot Goings in the neck before fleeing the area to seek help.

Police found Goings about a block away. He was taken to a hospital where he later died.

“It’s tragic that he did die, but the lady had to do what she had to do,” Bianca Daniel, who lives near the shooting scene, told WLS. “She’s on a bus stop, probably going to work, you know, and she has to encounter that early in the morning. I’m kind of proud that, like, that’s what she did because she stuck up for herself.”

Another neighbor said: “I’m glad that she had concealed carry and good aim, because there is so much going on in these streets.”

The woman, who suffered minor injuries during the incident, is not expected to face charges.

  1. But NOW would rather this woman be a victim than defend herself.

  2. Responsible citizen protects herself – this should be all over the news. I have found that all the years that I have carried, a lot of the time you’re defending others who can’t. Those who can should, for those who can’t that become victims to predators in the streets.
    So had gun control won out and nobody in chicago could have a gun for protection where would this woman be today? And that is what the Left have in mind for us if they get their way.

  3. I love it and they say only the good die young.
    Taking to my site. Thanks Dr.

    So, If she had not had a “permit”, she would have been the perpetrator rather than victim? Still a real problem here.

    • You know the saying here: Better to be judged by 12 than carried by six…

      And yes, the radical DemoRATs still don’t get the #2A. On purpose.

      • Absolutely. Yet these leftist gun-grabbing lunatics would still strip all peaceful, law-abiding citizens of their right to carry firearms to defend themselves against armed thugs like Goings. Before long, the libtards will label this criminal a victim, and start calling the woman a murderer.

  5. This is why we will NEVER let the corrupt Congress and Democratic perverts subvert the Constitution, and fuck with the Second Amendment.

  6. Self defense works. Waiting for others does not. It’s the difference between survivors and victims.

  7. Laavion? What the hell did his parents think he was going to grow up to be?
    I’d like to see a spreadsheet with the names of violent criminals with names that are made up and intended to be “in your face”.
    “It’s tragic that he did die”. Not really. The lady not only prevented herself from being a victim, but she probably ended a life of crime that would have impacted dozens of other people. She should get an award for Crime Prevention.

    • Not only is this incident not tragic in his case, but it is the antithesis: pathetic! Great good going girl, and many thanks for reducing the parasite murderer population.

    • I ran into the female equivalent in a doctor’s office. Her name was “Clamydia”. You know, like the infection?

      It’s a lot like “Kwanza”, they just make it up.

  8. I just love a good DRT* story.

    They always make my day. 😀

  9. Kudos to the lady! Not only did she defend herself, but she prevented the punk from minting even more victims. Goings is GONE!

  10. Salute to that courageous gal! Lavion Goings is no longer going to assault anybody, that’s for sure, and we taxpayers don’t have to dish out any money to keep his a@@ in jail. You go girl!

  11. Goings Goings Gone!
