Two robbery suspects were shot by an employee at a cell phone store in the Jeffrey Manor neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side.
“I think concealed carry is a great opportunity for managers, workers, employees to protect themselves in these cases. And our employee did a great job to protect themselves and the other employee.”
— Neil Tadros, store manager
The T-Mobile store in the 2000-block of East 95th St. was left riddled with bullet holes. If not for the employee carrying a weapon with a concealed carry license, the manager of the store says he might be telling a different story.
“I think concealed carry is a great opportunity for managers, workers, employees to protect themselves in these cases. And our employee did a great job to protect themselves and the other employee,” said Neil Tadros, store manager.
“One employee ran to the back to call for help while the other pulled out his own gun and fired at the two suspects. He hit one of them in the groin and the arm, and the other in the abdomen and the arm.”
He says two men entered the store and acted like they were shopping for phones for a few minutes, then pulled out guns.

Great Falls, Mont. (CBS SEATTLE) — A Montana man “liked” his own “most wanted” poster on a Crimestoppers Facebook page, which the group was able to capture in a screenshot under his mugshot before he revoked the social media move.
Levi Charles Reardon, 23, was arrested on April 24 without incident on felony charges of forgery in which he’s suspected of stealing a wallet and personal checks. The Crimestoppers Facebook page took a screenshot showing Reardon liked his own photo on the Great Falls/Cascade County social media page.
Reardon’s name appears under his own “most wanted” mugshot showing that “Levi Charles Reardon likes this” – a move the Crimestoppers page noticed and circled for the page’s other visitors to see.
Court records allege four of the missing checks were cashed by Reardon and there were two warrants for his arrest, the Great Falls Tribune reports.
