Is this fake news?

A "conservative" friend" just sent me (and some others) an article about an Attorney General candidate being robbed at gunpoint in Chicago. The Source is "Fox News" and I have no idea whether this is real or a joke. Has anyone closer to Chicago heard about this? I grew up in Chicago, and know it can be a rough town. But this sounds silly to me.
A Democratic candidate running for Illinois attorney general was robbed at gunpoint Thursday during a campaign photoshoot in Chicago.

It's really real, not really fake.

Others say it's true, and it doesn't surprise me. I did not personally hear this on Fox News today, but I didn't get in on the beginning of my favorite news reporter today. The story does not surprise me, though.

@TheHorse - Sadly, it has become almost impossible to know what is fake and what is real. If it isn't mentioned on Snopes, my litmus test for fake news is to see if it is mentioned on both a conservative and a liberal news source ... like Fox and NBC. Then, I assume it is likely to be true, even if they interpret the events differently. Sometimes, it is mind boggling to see how the facts can be twisted to suit a political agenda. It's pretty depressing, actually, that some people justify things, such as the words of our President, because of their political affiliation, not because of what is best for the people who live in our country.

Not if they stole all the cameras. Heh. But some must have mental images of what they looked or sounded like. I read that the neighborhood that it happened in is a true melting pot. Lots of Koreans and other immigrants there.
