Footage from a Logan Square armed robbery on April 10, 2013
Cornell Mack, 53, has been charged with attempted first-degree murder, armed robbery and discharge of a firearm.
He and another man walked into the Quizhpe's Gifts and Sports in the 2200 block of North Western Avenue Tuesday afternoon and held up Luis Quizhpe and his brother-in-law Luis Ernesto Aucaquizhpe at gunpoint.
They wounded Quizhpe before he fought off the gunman with a baseball bat and Aucaquizhpe chased them out of the store with a fire extinguisher. Quizhpe was shot in the leg and was recuperating at home this morning.
Mack was accidentally shot in the abdomen by the gunman, who remained at large as of Thursday, police said. Mack was arrested at Stroger Hospital, where he had shown up Tuesday evening claiming to have been shot on the South Side.
