CHICAGO (WLS) — A hotel guest traded gunfire with a would-be robber in River North Sunday night, Chicago police said.

Police said a man was staying at the Godfrey in the 100-block of West Huron Street when just after 11:30 p.m. an unknown person knocked on his door.

The 53-year-old victim opened the door and a man forced his way into the room, took out a gun and demanded the victim’s property, police said.

The suspect then began firing shots at the victim and the victim returned fire, police said.

The would-be robber fled the scene and the victim was left with a graze wound to the head, police said.

The victim was treated at the scene by the Chicago Fire Department and refused further medical attention.

Police recovered a weapon from the scene. No one is in custody.
