Police said a South Side family attacked a man who was robbing someone at gunpoint outside their apartment late Saturday night.
Two men tried to rob a 33-year-old man, who was shot during the attempt. He was taken to John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County.
He had been leaving an apartment near 79th Street and Greenwood Avenue in the East Chatham neighborhood about 9:20 p.m. when two men approached to rob him, police said.
Residents of the building, apparently not related to the man who was shot, saw what was happening and threw items out their windows at the robbers. Police said the items may have included ceramic dishes.
The two robbers and the 33-year-old went inside the apartment building and while inside, the family beat one attacker, police said. Police also said one of the robbers, 31, was stabbed with a screwdriver and is in critical condition. The other fled the scene. The 31-year-old is being held as a suspect in the robbery and shooting, police said.
