The Uber driver who shot and wounded a gunman in Chicago last Friday will not be charged, Chicago Tribune reports.
The driver fired six shots from a handgun at 22-year old Everardo Custodio when the latter started firing at a group of people walking in front of the driver in Logan Square on Friday, according to the police report.
Custodio was wounded and lying on the ground when the responding officers arrived. No other injury was reported, said Assistant State’s Attorney Barry Quinn in court on Sunday.
The driver, a 47-year-old resident of Little Italy, who had a concealed-carry permit acted in the defense of himself and others, said Quinn. No charges will be filed against him.
Custodio sustained gunshot wounds to the shin, thigh and lower back and was treated at Advocate Illinois Masonic hospital, police said. He was charged with aggravated assault and unlawful use of a weapon charges and was denied bond during the Sunday court hearing.
