Excerpts from ABC7Chicago.com:

A suburban firefighter is recovering after he was robbed, shot, and nearly paralyzed in Chicago’s West Town neighborhood early Monday morning.

The 27-year-old firefighter and paramedic works out of a firehouse in Berwyn. Chicago police said he was shot in the face during a robbery in the 1800-block of West Erie Street. No one is in custody. The investigation is ongoing.

The firefighter is now out of the hospital, recovering at home, and anxious to get back in uniform. He has been working at the Berwyn Fire Department for two and a half years.

Family did not release the firefighter’s name to protect his privacy.
