CCL-Holding Homeowner Shoots Midnight Intruder 

Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

A homeowner in Chatham, Illinois shot a midnight intruder earlier this month when he caught him trying to break in.

Midnight Intruder

According to the local Fox32 news, the intruder was about 50 years old.

The 50-year-old intruder tried to break into a home in Chicago’s South Side around midnight, on June 2nd. 

The homeowner confronted the midnight intruder and shot him. The intruder was hit in the back.

Police arrived and arrested the suspect. USACarry reported the intruder was in critical condition when he arrived at the University of Chicago Hospital.

Backlash Against The Homeowner

This case happened in South Chicago, where gun laws are tight. Those against using guns will likely claim the homeowner was not acting in self-defense.

Some people say that because the homeowner shot the intruder in the back, that was not self-defense.

In Illinois, self-defense is legal if the victim reasonably believes they are in danger. It is also considered appropriate to defend against felonies, such as theft. 


Just because the midnight intruder was hit in the back, does not mean he retreated. Too little information has been released to accuse the homeowner of anything unethical.

Let’s hope that his decision to defend himself ends up in his favor.

    Chatham IL is not located in Chicago’s South side. Pull your head out and get the facts straight.

      There is a Chatham, IL. Located on rt.4 south of Springfield, IL. Are you positive the author of the article is wrong?

        Yes there is, did YOU read the article where it mentions Chicago’s south side, and Fox 32 which is a Chicago TV station. I live in this cesspit of a state and I know my local geography. Do you? Did you read the article? Springfield is no where near Chicago. In your case it was better to stay quiet and let everyone think you are an idiot than open your mouth and remove all doubt.

          I think you need to chill out and actually read the article. It happened in Chicago, in the Chatham neighborhood. The author put it as the city but it was in south Chicago neighborhood of Chatham.

          The only idiot is you and the way you acted.

            Yes Chatham is a neighborhood in Chicago, not Chatham, IL. Reporting should be thorough.
