Armed Uber Driver Stops Shooter in Chicago

1 post in this topic

An Uber driver shot and wounded a gunman who opened fire into a crowd of people on Friday night in Chicago.

A group of people had been walking in front of the driver in Logan Square when Everardo Custodio, 22, began firing into the crowd.

The Uber driver, a 47-year-old resident of Little Italy, has a concealed carry permit. He pulled out a handgun and fired six shots at Everardo Custodio, hitting him several times, according to court records.

Police in the area heard the shots and found Custodio lying on the ground, bleeding. A handgun was found near Custodio, who was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic hospital. He was treated for gunshot wounds to the shin, thigh and lower back, authorities said. Custodio was the only person injured in the shooting.

Custodio was charged with aggravated assault and unlawful use of a weapon. He was denied bond during a court hearing on Sunday.

The Uber driver provided police with a valid concealed-carry permit and a firearm owner’s identification card. Assistant State’s Attorney Barry Quinn said the driver “was acting in self-defense and in the defense of others.” Authorities said he will not face any charges.
