A man who tried to rob an armored truck guard Friday morning in the Humboldt Park neighborhood was charged with the murder of his accomplice, who was shot dead by one of the guards, police said.
One of the guards from Garda armored cars had just made a pick-up at the Family Dollar store, 3401 W. Chicago. He was walking back to his truck, parked in front, when the two armed men approached at about 9:45 a.m., police said.
One man walked up to the guard, put an apparent sawed-off shotgun under his chin, and said, “Don’t move.” Another man approached from the rear, put the guard in a chokehold and stuck a small revolver in his back, said Chicago Police Commander Anthony Riccio.
“Then the guard hears the guy from behind say, ‘Kill him.’.....
That's some damn fine shootin'...
