Chicago — As prosecutors laid out allegations against a Chicago woman during a bail hearing on Sunday, the details kept getting worse. And worse. And worse. It is, really, a little slice of the current state of affairs in Chicago. A slice we’d all probably be better off without.
It started routinely enough. A man left his pickup truck unlocked in the 500 block of West Grenshaw in the South Loop. The truck owner happened to be a concealed carry holder, and he left his gun in the center console.
round 10 a.m. Friday, 31-year-old Holly Butler opened the truck’s door and found the man’s gun inside the center console, officials said. She took it.
Butler walked a few steps, entered a 7-Eleven, pointed the gun at the cashier, and demanded $20 and a pack of Newport cigarettes, prosecutors said.
