Chicago police said Saturday that a concealed carry holder used his gun to shoot a man who allegedly had attempted to rob him on Friday afternoon while riding a CTA Green Line train.

The incident occurred in the 4700 block of West Lake Street at approximately 4:43 p.m. local time.

A 33-year-old man pulled out a gun and attempted to rob the 25-year-old male victim.

However, the victim then produced a weapon of his own, and there was an exchange of gunfire.

The victim was not hit, but authorities told Fox News Digital that the offender was struck in the leg.

He was transported to Mt. Sinai Hospital and was initially reported in fair condition.

The offender was taken into custody, and charges are currently pending.

The department said that area detectives were investigating.

The victim has a valid Illinois Concealed Carry License and Firearm Owner's Identification Card.

The article says "a concealed carry holder used his gun to shoot a man who allegedly had attempted to rob him." Why is the robber an "alleged robber" while the concealed carry holder is not "an alleged shooter?" Especially if the concealed carrier may have committed a crime by having a gun on CTA, he deserves to be "alleged" also.

^^^^^ It fits the anti-gun narrative better.
