Store Owner Shoots Attacker During Robbery

A 66-year-old liquor store owner in Chicago, Salim Khamo, was shot and killed during a robbery on Monday night. The robber pulled out a gun and demanded money, but Khamo fought back and fired his own gun. Unfortunately, he missed, and the assailant escaped without taking anything.

Khamo was taken to the hospital, where he later died from his wounds. Khamo was a refugee from Iraq and had opened the store 17 years ago. He was just a few weeks away from retirement. Khamo’s family remembers him as a compassionate and hardworking man who loved his family.

It is unclear if Khamo hesitated or his gun was not within reach. It is important to remember that self-defense situations can be unpredictable, and psychological preparedness is just as important as physical training. The family hopes the perpetrator is brought to justice.
