A 48-year-old man was shot in an attempted robbery early Sunday in Roseland on the Far South Side.

He was standing outside about 12:40 a.m. in the 10500 block of South Michigan Avenue when a person approached him and demanded his money, Chicago police said.

The man refused and reached for the armed suspect’s handgun, according to police.

The gunman fired a shot and struck the man in the knee before fleeing the scene, police said.

The man self-transported to Roseland Hospital in good condition, police said.

No one is in custody as Area Two detectives investigate.
