Another home-invading felon in Chicago dropped by homeowner with gun

Score another one for the good guys!


Man shot by resident after breaking into home to flee police
June 3, 2010 9:10 AM | No Comments | UPDATED STORY
A 26-year-old Chicago man was shot by a resident of a home whose window he crashed through in an attempt to flee police, officials said.

The resident had a valid Firearm Owner's Identification Card, and police are not pursuing charges against him despite the city's ban on handguns.

The incident was the second in little more than a week in which a decision was made not to pursue charges against someone firing on an intruder. On May 26, an 80-year-old East Garfield Park homeowner shot and killed an apparent burglar.

Today's intruder, a convicted felon, was identified by police as Aaron Marshall, of the 5400 block of West Monroe St. He has been charged with criminal trespass and drug possession, said Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Laura Kubiak.

Marshall's criminal background includes a felony drug conviction in 2009 and a 2007 conviction for felony aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, court records show. He also is a gang member with a lengthy arrest record, police said.

Marshall was pulled over by police for a traffic violation on the 300 block of North Pine Street in the South Austin neighborhood on the West Side shortly after midnight, according to Kubiak.
The incident began when the man was pulled over and then fled from his vehicle, Kubiak said. As he fled with police in pursuit on foot, he dropped a large quantity of narcotics, Kubiak said.

As he attempted to escape police, the man crashed through the front window of a home on the 300 block of North Long Avenue, Kubiak said.

When police showed up at the home the homeowners let them in and police found the man shot in the chest, apparently with a revolver, Kubiak said.

The homeowners told police that they heard the window glass break and then saw the man inside their home, Kubiak said. The resident told police they feared for their safety and shot the man, Kubiak said.

Marshall was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where his condition had stabilized. He was expected to survive, officials said.

Marshall also was ticketed for failure to heed a stop sign and for driving on a revoked license.

You obviously missed the 'drugs' part of the story.

Thank you Capt. Obvious . I got that part.

What I was getting at is - with that list of prior offenses, why does his current address not contain the words "penitentiary" and "cell block"?
