An armed 80-year-old man fended off multiple suspects during a broad-daylight home invasion in Chicago this week, according to reports.

The harrowing incident unfolded at around 10:30 a.m. on Monday morning in the Windy City.

The victim heard a knock at the front door of his home near O’Hare International Airport, NBC Chicago reports.

When he opened the door, two suspects “made entry without permission,” according to police.

The suspects, one male and one female, began beating the elderly man.

During the struggle, the victim — who holds an Illinois Firearms Owner’s Identification card — managed to shoot the male intruder in the chest.

The suspects fled the scene but later turned up at Resurrection Hospital seeking medical treatment for the wounded male, who was listed in critical condition.

Both were taken into police custody and are expected to face charges.

“The victim was battered and sustained several injuries throughout the body and was transported to Resurrection Hospital in critical condition,” Chicago Police said.

Infowars has been reporting on the surge of crime in many U.S. cities.

In order to build back better they must destroy the old system.
