(Meredith) – A 25-year-old woman with a concealed carry permit shot and killed a man attempting to rob her at a Chicago bus stop, police said.

The 19-year-old suspect approached the woman around 5:45 a.m. Tuesday and tried to rob her at gunpoint, the Chicago Tribune reported.

Police said the woman then pulled out her weapon and fired one shot, striking him in the neck. The man ran off but was found a block away and taken to Christ Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Authorities have not identified the 19-year-old, but an autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday as the investigation continues.
