Store owner beats back armed robber: 'My blood boiled over.'
Luis Quizhpe doesn't remember getting shot as he grabbed a bat and swatted at a gunman holding his brother-in-law by the throat in their Logan Square store.
But he can still hear the loud bangs of gunfire. Ten shots in all as he and his brother-in-law Luis Ernesto Aucaquizhpe bashed and battered and finally chased the robbers out of Quizhpe's Gifts and Sports Tuesday afternoon.
"I thought it was a toy, but what made me frightened and really made me angry was when they grabbed my brother-in-law by the neck and they were pointing the gun at him," Quizhpe, 62, said Wednesday from Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where he was nursing a leg wound.
"It was like the Fourth of July. Pow, pow, pow," he said. "Then he was yelling, 'Kill the (expletive)."

3. He cracked 5 or 6 times in the noggin, from what I saw.
But I don't think he was swinging for the fences.
So are those store owners not legally allowed to have a firearm, since it's Chicago?
