A teenage girl was shot in the chest on Friday night in Chicago after she tried to steal a woman's dog, authorities say.
When Diaz communicated that the price for the animal would be $800, the girl reportedly brandished a pellet gun, The Chicago Tribune reports.
She then allegedly ordered Diaz to the ground, hit her over the head with the pellet gun and tried to take the dog without paying for it.
That's when Diaz pulled out a handgun and reportedly shot the girl in the chest.
The Chicago Police Department says that while Diaz has a valid Firearm Owner's Identification card to posses a weapon, she did not have a concealed carry license.
Diaz was taken into police custody in the town of Cicero around 6.46pm and was charged with one felony count of unlawful use of a weapon.
She was not charged in the shooting because it is being considered self-defense.
the teenager was transported to Stroger Hospital to treat her gunshot wounds and was subsequently arrested on Saturday.
She has been charged with attempted armed robbery and will appear in juvenile court on December 9.
