A man was shot during an attempted robbery early Sunday in the Back of the Yards neighborhood on the South Side.

The 27-year-old was walking in the 5400 block of South Aberdeen about 12:20 a.m. when an armed male walked up and announced a robbery, according to Chicago Police.

The man pushed the gun away and the would-be robber opened fire, shooting the man in the thigh, police said.

He took himself to St. Bernard Hospital, where his condition was stabilized, police said.
