Chicago Woman Shoots Armed Robber – January 8, 2019
Surveillance video shows the moments before and after a Far South Side shooting in which a man was fatally shot Tuesday morning while attempting to rob a woman in the Fernwood neighborhood.
About 5:45 a.m., Laavion Goings, 19, approached the woman, 25, in the 500 block of West 103rd Street, displayed a weapon and tried to rob her, Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.
The woman, who was a concealed-carry holder, took out her own weapon and fired one shot, striking Goings in the neck, authorities said.
Surveillance cameras at B & G Heinz Pharmacy in the area captured the lead up to the shooting and the aftermath.
Goings left the scene and was found a block away, officials said. He was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he died. Goings lived about a block away from where he was shot.
An autopsy Wednesday found he died of a gunshot wound to his chest and his death was ruled a homicide, the medical examiner’s office said.
Police said the shooting remained under investigation, but no charges had been filed against the woman as of Tuesday evening.
