A woman told WBBM-TV she had just exited a Chase Bank on South Michigan Avenue in Chicago on Monday afternoon with some cash in hand when a heart-stopping encounter took place.
"I had just come out of the bank and was sitting in my car about to lock my door to pull off and leave," the unnamed woman told the station in an audio-only interview.
Then a would-be carjacker "opened my door and put a gun in my face,” the woman told WBBM.
But this particular crook had a big problem on his hands.
Turns out his victim is licensed to carry a concealed gun, the station said — and she was packing and ready.
