A man was shot during an attempted robbery Sunday night in the Marquette Park neighborhood on the Southwest Side.

The 57-year-old man was standing near an alley in the 7000 block of South Maplewood about 10:35 p.m. when another male walked up and announced a robbery, according to Chicago Police.

A struggle ensued, and the 57-year-old was shot in the left hand, police said. The robber, who was thought to be between 17 and 20 years old, ran away northbound.

The man took himself to Holy Cross Hospital, where he was listed in good condition, police said.
