    Man's 'warning shot' kills woman who was robbing him

    December 23, 2009
    BY STEFANO ESPOSITIO Staff Reporter



    A 31-year-old man said he intended to fire only a “warning shot” when he accidentally killed a woman who’d been part of a group who robbed him Tuesday night on the South Side.

    “I’m trying to fire a warning shot — like stay the hell back,” the man said in an interview Wednesday. He did not want his name printed.

    Police say the man’s story appears to check out.

    The dead woman was identified as Barbara McComb, 21, of the 4200 block of South Calumet Avenue, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. She was pronounced dead early Wednesday at Stroger Hospital.

    The man said he was robbed at gunpoint about 11 p.m. while he was walking to a corner store near 47th and South Prairie. He said he was then forced into a sedan with the gunman and four others, all of whom appeared to be in their teens.

    At some point, three of the robbers got out of the car and walked into a nearby restaurant to try to use the victim’s ATM card, the man said.

    A short while later, the vehicle driver — apparently concerned about nearby police activity — tossed his handgun into the back seat, where McComb was sitting.

    “I guess she fumbles, and the gun goes off — pow!” the man said.

    The man said he was able to pick up the gun and jump out of the vehicle.

    But McComb, who’d been shot in the hand when the gun discharged, chased after him, the man said.

    That’s when he says he opened fire. The man later flagged down police.

    The man, who was wearing a suit, may have looked like an easy target to the robbers, a law enforcement source said.
