A guy who robbed a Chicago hot dog stand was fleeing the scene of the crime and he accidentally shot himself in the penis and leg. It was the same gun that he allegedly used to rob a Far South Side hot dog stand before attempting his escape at the wee hours in the morning. He was caught when first responders approached a shooting victim with two injuries and it turned out to be him, the guy who robbed the hot dog stand. So much for having his breakfast and eating it too.
The suspect, Terrion Pouncy, is a 19-year-old who is reported to have robbed the hot dog stand wearing a dark scarf on his face and a dark sweatshirt with a hood. He approached two workers, 39 and 45, and wanted the cash from the register. He showed them a small firearm and the 39-year-old employee gave him the money. Then Pouncy stole his wallet, took his cell phone, and ran off into the distance where he would eventually shoot himself in the thigh and penis.
Chicago Tribune reports that the robbery crime was caught on video.
Pounch was arrested, hospitalized, and is now held without bail and is pending a hearing.
