A concealed carry holder in Chicago sent one criminal to the hospital after catching him breaking into his house. Prosecutors say the man shot a burglar who charged at him when he returned to his home in Chinatown on Monday evening.
The burglar, Tywone Underwood, 30, is hospitalized and charged with a felony. He was shot in the stomach. Chicago police responded to the victim’s home in the 300 block of West 24th Place around 6:30 p.m. and found Underwood down for the count.
Prosecutors charged him with residential burglary and assault. Judge Charles Beach ordered him to pay a $25,000 deposit toward bail to get out of custody. According to CWB Chicago:
“The homeowner, 32, told cops that he saw his garage door open and a bike leaning against the garage when he returned home. When he peeked into the garage’s side door, Underwood charged at him, the prosecutor said.

“The victim took a step back, pulled out his gun, and shot Underwood once in the abdomen, said Sarah Dale-Schmidt, a Cook County prosecutor.
“Police found the victim’s PlayStation, Yeezy slippers, and an Apple iPod in the garage, all of which had been removed from the man’s home by Underwood.
“Cops determined that Underwood entered the victim’s home through an unlocked second-floor window and then ransacked the residence, Dale-Schmidt said.”
Underwood was convicted of manufacture-delivery in 2011 and unlawful use of a weapon in 2012.
Underwood was also convicted of a few burglary misdemeanors in recent years.

Now, he's charged with burglary. And he's hospitalized.
